Notes on the Recommended Budget

Circumstances have precluded our ability to have the entire FY22 Recommended Budget available at this time. Items of note about this interim electronic version are:

  • This document is bookmarked.
  • The included Reader’s Guide is not fully updated and is therefore marked as “DRAFT”.
  • The table of contents is incomplete.
  • The Mayor’s Message, Appropriating Ordinance and attachments, Mill Levy Resolution and attachment are not page numbered.
  • The Budget Highlights section is not included.

The electronic version will be updated and updated to this web page on a piecemeal basis until the final full FY22 Recommended Budget is complete, at which time, it will be marked as such.

Public Participation Plan & Timeline

The FNSB Budget Public Participation Plan & Timeline (PDF) highlights efforts the administration will use to educate and inform the public about the fiscal year 2021-22 budget planning process and presents a timeline of opportunities for the community to provide input. There are four objectives of the public participation plan: Inform, Engage, Listen, and Respond.
