The City Budget was
crafted with the intent of preserving the programs and services critical to the City of
Perris during a period of drastically reduced revenue. While the City's population has continued to grow, major General Fund revenue sources such as property and sales taxes, building fees and permits, and interest earnings have only recently started to recover from years of extreme decline. The primary objective of the current budget was to devote these slowly recovering revenues to the continuance of current programs and service levels for Perris residents.
The City's resiliency and willingness to make difficult decisions in past years has positioned Perris to take full advantage of the current and ongoing fiscal recovery. The current Budget for the City of Perris is for 2013 through 2015.

Auditor Opinion Letters & Other Communications
As a result of the City’s annual independent audit, the external auditor issues a report on the financial statements indicating whether the statements conform to Generally Accepted Accounting Practices (GAAP) and if the financial statements are presented without material misstatement. This report can be found in each Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (follow this link to view the reports), and is located in the Introductory Section.
The external auditors also issue a SAS-114 Conclusion Letter each fiscal year. In the letter, the auditor must communicate matters related to the financial statement audit that are significant and relevant to the responsibilities of those charged with governance and outline any significant findings or issues encountered during the audit.
