Every two years, staff and Council prepare a Biennial Budget document, which commits government resources and services to accomplish the City’s mission of making Arroyo Grande the best place possible for everyone who lives, works, and visits here. Work is now underway to develop the upcoming biennial budget for Fiscal Years 2023- 25. The anticipated 5-step process and timeline for this budget cycle is depicted below:
Step 1: On January 3, 2023, an Arroyo Grande Community Priorities Survey was published. This 5-question online survey was posted on the City website and promoted on social media channels. The survey was open for one month and closed on February 20th. The survey allowed community members to provide input regarding their thoughts on what the top priorities should be for the City over the next 2-3 years. The survey included a combination of multiple choice and short response questions. A summary of the responses is included in Attachment 4 of the March 2, Special Council Meeting Staff Report.
