City Financial Reports


The City budget is prepared by the Budget Team and approved by the City Council. The purpose of the City budget is two-fold: (1) the budget identifies the programs and activities that each City department will undertake during the budget year; and (2) the budget allocates appropriate resources to each department to assist them in accomplishing their annual work plan, and doing so in a fiscally responsible and accountable manner. 

The City of San Pablo utilizes a “quadrennial” (four-year) budget cycle.  The budget document is prepared in odd-numbered years and covers a four-year period with a major update happening at mid-cycle (after two years).  Each year is considered a separate budget, beginning on July 1 and ending on June 30.  Because of the economic disruption caused by the novel Coronavirus pandemic, the City has undertaken a one-year budget cycle until the economy stabilizes.
