City of Rock Springs Budget Timeline


Official notification of the budget process is provided to city departments, outside entities and elected officials during January of each year.  Budget requests are required to be submitted by early March.  After compilation of the requests and revenue estimates, a series of departmental budget meetings are conducted by the Budget Committee.


Budget workshops are held by the governing body during April of each year allowing outside entities and departments to provide additional information on their budget requests as well as answer any questions the governing body may have.


Pursuant to Wyoming State Statutes, the preliminary budget is presented to the governing body at a regular council meeting prior to May 15 of each year.  The budget is subject to revision until the approval of the proposed budget at the second regular meeting in June.  The format of the budget is set forth in Wyoming State Statute and following a public hearing as provided in W.S. 16-4-109, the governing body adopts the budget.  Each version of the budget is accompanied by a budget message outlining important features of the budget.


After passage, the budget becomes effective on July 1.
