City Budget / Henry Fierro – Director

Welcome to the Budget Department

The Budget and Management Studies Department (BMSD) assists in financial planning and strategic management processes across the city organization by delivering management information, decision support, consulting, auditing, and implementation services.

TWO PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES:


1) Production and Administration of the City of Fresno’s Annual Budget

2) Administration of the Master Fee Schedule

Current Budget

FY 2024 Adopted Budget

The City of Fresno Annual Budget is the most important document the City produces. It outlines the City’s spending plan and priorities for the coming fiscal year, which runs from July 1st to June 30th. Each year, the city’s budget is developed in conjunction with the Mayor, City Manager and all city departments. The budget is then reviewed and approved by the City Council. The result is a budget that closely matches the community’s highest priorities each fiscal year.

Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award to the City of Fresno, California for its annual budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023.

In order to receive this award, a governmental unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, as an operations guide, as a financial plan, and as a communications device.

This award is valid for a period of one year only. We believe our current budget continues to conform to program requirements, and we are submitting it to GFOA to determine its eligibility for another award.

Current Master Fee Schedule

The Master Fee Schedule (MFS) Resolution reports fees for services that are provided to our citizens. Fees that do not recover the full cost of providing the service, resulting in a subsidy that shifts funds away from the critical, high priority needs of job creation, public safety initiatives, utility services, and neighborhood programs.
