The City is presenting a conservative, balanced budget that meets the service requirements for Auburn's citizens and businesses. The objective, as always, is to provide a reasonable level of service to the Auburn community within the framework of fiscal integrity and sound financial management. What is being shown here is the Council-approved budget. The first section shows the total operating and capital budget; the second section shows the capital budget only. Our goal is to present the City's use of funds to the public in a transparent and easy to understand way.
