During FY 2012 the city implemented a model known as Budgeting for Outcomes. This model operates with funding allocations based on Priorities as focus areas as set by City Council. For FY 2016 City Council reaffirmed the 7 Priorities of Economy, Education, Good Government, Human Services, Infrastructure, Livability, and Safety. Departments prepare Offers and submit them to the appropriate Priorities where they can be ranked and evaluated for funding by a Priority Team.
