Adopted Operating & Capital Budget FY 2016

The City of Grants Pass prepares fiscal budgets under guidelines issued by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). The GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program (Budget Awards Program) in 1984 to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the very highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA's recommended practices on budgeting and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal. The GFOA has detailed criteria under each of the following 4 major budget presentation categories:

  1. The budget as a policy document
  2. The budget as a financial plan
  3. The budget as an operations guide
  4. The budget as a communications device

The following links will take you to the complete budget and capital detail documents.
