The Pasco City Council is seeking comments, both online and in person, from the public on the 2018 Preliminary Budget. City staff presented the 2018 Budget at the October 30 City Council Special Meeting. The Council will hold public hearings on Monday, November 6, and Monday, November 20, both at 7pm in City Hall, to receive comments from the community on the proposals for 2018, with final approval of the 2018 Budget set for the November 20 meeting. 

City Manager Dave Zabell said, in his 2018 Budget Message, “The preliminary budget proposal as presented seeks to satisfy or make significant progress toward the City Council’s adopted Goals for 2016-2017 by providing for the implementation of important policy decisions made by the City Council through the process of prioritization, recognition and implementation of efficiencies. As with the prior year, this proposal attempts to maximize value through the efficient provision of services while minimizing the level of taxes, rates and fees paid by the citizens of Pasco.”
