The Budget Office is responsible for preparing the town's budget, under the oversight of the town manager and in collaboration with the various departments and divisions.
The budget is a blueprint for building a sound financial framework for town operations. It ensures the town's resources are allocated toward the priorities identified by the Board of Commissioners. Specifically, the budget is a financial plan consisting of an estimate of proposed expenditures, the proposed means of financing and the goals and objectives of expenditures for the fiscal year (July 1-June 30).
The fiscal year 2016-17 budget was the 16th to receive the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association, the highest national award in governmental budgeting.
The Town of Hillsborough uses a strategic plan to align available resources with priorities. This is critical to effective and efficient delivery of government services.
During Fiscal Year 2020, the town revised its performance reporting system. New strategic goals have been adopted, establishing the town’s priorities for policy initiatives, capital investments, and budgeting and staffing decisions to achieve outcomes important to the community.
The plan ― which includes the town’s mission, vision and values ― is still being developed to create the specific initiatives that departments will implement to meet town goals.
