A budget is one of the most important documents a municipality develops and approves on an annual basis. It is a document that acts as policy, guide, and communicator of priorities for appointed staff and the public alike. Review will include developing a budget calendar, determining fee schedules, structuring spreadsheets, and narratives plus the importance of developing and coordinating the use of a capital budget with operational budgets to better stabilize tax rates and keep your community on the right track.

The series will be interactive and include group discussions. You must complete all four classes to receive a course completion and scholarship funds. Class size is limited.

Cost:  $100 for PSAB members, $150 non-members, $50 PSAB Plus members. You must register directly with PSAB (see below).   A link will be sent by PSAB prior to the event.
