Our Budget in Brief offers a high-level view of the expenses, revenues and budget priorities in the FY2023-24 draft budget. Along with our Open Budget data, this is part of the City’s commitment to providing complex operational and financial data in an open and easy-to-understand format. Open Budget provides a guided view of our budget and a transparent look at how public funds are allocated in Roseville.  The FY2023-24 budget will be included in Open Budget after adoption by the City Council.

General Fund: Where does the money go?

How is the money spent

The FY2023-24 budget has been developed to account for the expected rise in labor costs and other unavoidable expenses. It also includes augmentations to maintain the City’s service levels and address the City Council’s top priorities. The budget aims to ensure the maintenance of necessary capital infrastructure, and the mitigation of unfunded liabilities for the long-term benefit of our community.
