Budget Process

In June, the Tigard City Council adopts the approved budget for the next fiscal year for both the city and urban renewal district.

The budget allows the city to direct its resources to the priorities of the community and city leaders. Below are some of the highlights of the fiscal year 2015 budget:
 
  • Focusing our existing core services in Strategic Plan goals.
  • Performing a parks maintenance study to determine service levels, costs, and proposed funding of current and future parks and trails. 
  • Continued investment in Tigards' infrastructure including streets, parks, sewer, storm, water, and facilities needs.
Tigard is making some key one-time investments to improve efficiency in the way we provide service to our customers. These include:

  • Automated materials handling equipment in the library which will sort materials and allow more people to perform re-shelving duties, meaning our library patrons will get their library materials faster. 
  • Mobile computing equipment for police which will allow for less time in the office and more time in the field. 
  • A new phone system for the city—modernizing our phone system and increased reliability.
  • Fixes for the exterior of the Permit Center, Police and City Hall. 
  • Adjusted staffing with current resources to meet service needs.

Master Fees and Charges Schedule

City fees and charges are reviewed and adjusted as a part of the budgeting process so that the city can recover costs for providing services.

Some fees (like planning and the street maintenance fee) are adjusted annually based on economic labor indices while other fees are set by outside agencies like Clean Water Services or Washington County.
