City Budget Workshop: Saturday May 11

Public invited to attend budget workshop when Municipal Service Tax and Sewer Tax will be considered. –

The Piedmont City Council will discuss the annual budget for fiscal year 2013-2014 at a  work session in the Police Department Emergency Operations Center on Saturday, May 11,  beginning at 9:00 a.m.  There will be no public broadcast of the meeting.  At the work session, the City Administrator and  city department heads will present their  proposed budgets, and the Council will ask questions about the proposals.

The public is invited to attend the workshop and speak about spending priorities for the coming year. (The Budget year goes from July 1 to June 30 of the following year.) Click to visit the 2013-2014 Proposed Budget page, where all sections of the budget are available for download.

Following the work session, the Council will hold the City Charter-required public hearings on the proposed budget on Monday, June 3 and June 17 when the Council will receive input from the public on the proposed budget, the levy of the Municipal Services Tax, and  the Sewer Tax.    Approval of the budget and adoption of the tax levies is scheduled for the June 17 meeting.  By Charter, the Council must take final action on the budget by June 30.

Generally, after the Council work session the budget becomes less malleable.  Those interested in the budget will find the work session informative and an opportunity to provide input to the Council.

For questions on budget contents,  Erick Cheung, Finance/HR Director, can be contacted via email at or by phone at 420-3045.

Those wishing to provide written input to the Council, can address their letters to City Council, 120 Vista Avenue, Piedmont, CA 94611 or send an e-mail to the City Clerk at
