The Village budgets on an annual basis. Though monitoring and adjustments are made throughout the year, the formal budgeting process begins in late June with the establishment of the budget timeline and parameters.
The culmination of the process is in November with Village Board approval of the Village Managers recommended budget. Tax bills are generated in December using the levy amounts approved in the budget.
In addition to serving as a financial outline for the upcoming year, Whitefish Bay's budget serves as a policy and project outline, communication tool and an operations plan.
