City Budgets are adopted bi-annually by the City Council through resolution. As provided by City ordinance, the Director of Finance is responsible for preparing the budget and for its implementation after adoption.
The current 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 2015-2017.
