City of DuPont Budget
The City’s Budget is composed of 14 separate funds that are balanced independently. The City's budget is divided into three primary sections:
  • General Government
  • Stormwater Utility
  • Water Utility

General Funds
General government funds include the General Fund which accounts for services to the public including public safety, street maintenance, land use, parks and recreation, and administrative functions. Taxes, fees and charges, and contributions from other governments are the primary resources for general government activities. Other general government funds include those that account for debt service, capital improvements and reserves.

Utility Funds
Distinct from the general government funds, the Water Utility and Stormwater Utility Funds each operate much the same as a business, with customer charges supporting all costs. Resources of the utilities cannot be used to subsidize general government functions.

City of DuPont 2016 Budget
Mayor Michael Grayum presented his proposed 2016 budget to the public and City Council on September 22, 2015, which includes approximately $7.8M in General Fund investments and a total budget of $14.2M. The Mayor’s budget sustains current staffing and service levels, does not increase taxes, and adds operational capacity for public services without adding new employees. It establishes a new Operational Reserve or ‘Rainy Day Fund,’ is fiscally responsible, and makes strategic investments for our city’s future. 

Next, the City Council will review and consider changes at public meetings and workshops. The Mayor encourages every to be involved in this process and provide feedback to Council as they work to adopt a final 2016 budget by the end of the end of this year. 

The budget can be downloaded separately or completely. The Budget Message provides a summary and highlights of the Mayor’s proposal and is available below.
