The City Budgeting Manual for FY 2016 is a comprehensive resource manual providing information and analysis to assist city officials in planning and adopting the Fiscal Year 2016 budget. For new city officials, the chapter on “The Basics of City Budgeting” is a useful primer on the various aspects of the budget cycle. The following chapter, “The City Budgeting Process: Understanding the Law,” identifies and explains the provisions of Idaho law that govern city budgeting. The relevant Idaho Code sections (or excerpts) are provided in gray textboxes. City revenue sources are discussed in detail in the chapter “Understanding Revenue Sources,” which also provides the relevant Idaho Code sections in gray textboxes. The manual concludes with an extensive glossary of budgeting and finance terms, and the appendices include revenue reports with projections.
