The new fiscal year begins on July 1st.

“Department Heads take part in the budget process by providing recommendations on specific projects and programs their departments want to pursue,” Mayor McMillan said. “I then weigh the City’s various goals and commitments as we plan next year’s budget.”

Here are key dates in the Fiscal Year 2019 budget process:

  • Department Budget Presentations: May 7th-10th.
  • Mayor’s Budget Presentation and News Conference: May 24th.
  • Budget Work Sessions for City Council: June 7th, June 13th.
  • Special Session Public Hearing and First Reading: June 14th.
  • Special Session Second Reading: June 21st.

Beginning with her first budget in 2011, Mayor McMillan has made citizen engagement in the process a priority.

“I believe open budget hearings are critical to good government,” Mayor McMillan said. “It’s important that members of the public know and understand how their tax dollars are being spent, and to see how Department Heads make recommendations and then follow through to meet our priorities.”

All of the Department Budget Presentations will be in the City Council Chambers, 106 Public Square. The sessions may be viewed live on the City’s website at www.cityofclarksville.com, and live on CDE Lightband Channel 3.
