Amending the Budget

From time to time, Town Council may determine an adjustment is needed to the adopted budget.

  • Since the Budget is adopted by ordinance, an ordinance is required to amend it if the total changes either up or down.
  • The Town Manager has certain authority to amend the budget within the prescribed totals. This authority is granted through the budget ordinance.
  • Other amendments changing the budget - without changing the total - can be made by vote of Town Council.
