The Budgeting and Financial Reporting Section is responsible for coordinating the City’s annual budget and preparing the comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). 


The City of Rancho Cucamonga operates on a fiscal year basis from July 1st through June 30th of the following year.  Accordingly, the City adopts an Annual Budget, which begins in July and ends in June.  The Annual Budget also includes a 5-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget that outlines proposed capital projects, applicable funding sources, and timelines for public improvements in the City.  Both the Annual Budget and the CIP include the City, Library and Fire District operations. Work begins on the budget in January of each year as the City reviews the mid-year revenues and expenditures and begins preparing a draft budget for the following fiscal year.  Departmental meetings are held with the Finance Department and the City Manager’s Office during March and April to prepare a preliminary budget for the City Council to review.  In early June, the City holds a public budget workshop to review the preliminary budget, answer questions, and receive input on the following fiscal year’s budget.    Following the budget workshop, the Final Budget is presented to the City Council in late June for adoption.

Finance staff provide quarterly budget updates to the City Council with a more comprehensive overview provided as of midyear.  Following is a link to the presentation given to City Council on February 20, 2019, regarding the Midyear Budget Update for the six month period ended December 31, 2018.
