Biennial Budget

The City of Pullman Budget document is the most important planning tool for municipal operations.  The budget identifies sources of revenue and priorities of activities by way of the spending plan.

Beginning in 2019, the City Council adopted a biennial budget which outlines financial operations from January 1 of the odd numbered year to December 31 of the even numbered year.

The budget process is community driven in helping staff prepare their recommendations to the Mayor & City Council.  Public hearings to provide input on revenues, expenses, and financial activities are a key component of developing the final document.  The timeline for budget activities is published near the beginning of the third quarter in even number years.
