Budget Development Process

The City of Moreno Valley adopts a two-year budget to plan the use of resources available to provide services for residents and businesses. The next two-year cycle begins July 1, 2019. The Proposed Budget will present projected operating revenues and expenditures for the two fiscal years: Fiscal Years (FY) 2019/20 – 2020/21. The budget includes all component units of the City, including the General Fund, Community Services District and Housing Authority. The Budget includes both Operating Budgets and Capital Improvement Project budget requests.

The review of the proposed budget provides a public process to discuss the City’s proposed budget with the City Council and public to make the process as transparent as possible. The review of the budget as part of this initial adoption, subsequent amendments, and periodic reviews provides an ongoing public process to monitor expenditures and revenues throughout the fiscal years.

As part of the budget adoption process, the City Council has requested a series of discussions related to the proposed budget long-term financial issues impacting the City. These discussions occur through various City Council meetings and study sessions, with the intent to review and discuss details and related impacts. Information presented on these topics will be posted on the City’s web site as part of the posted Agenda Packages. The budget process is an ongoing process throughout each fiscal year with all items continuing to be monitored and reviewed following the initial adoption.

Moreno Valley prides itself on being a safe, well-maintained community where we can live, do business, or raise a family. Recent state and national changes mean our City must continue to work to maintain our financial stability and community quality of life, no matter what happens with state and federal policies that potentially affect the funding Moreno Valley and other California cities receive.

In past years, the City conducted a series of community surveys which asked the public about a range of issues, including satisfaction with some of the services we provide and issues of concern to the public. Some of the priorities identified by your neighbors in that survey included:

  • Maintaining 911 emergency response times/services
  • Maintaining robbery and burglary suppression programs
  • Protecting local funds from State or regional money grabs
  • Maintaining safe and clean public areas
  • Repairing potholes, local streets, and roads
  • Maintaining the number of sworn police officers on the streets and fire engines in service
  • Improving fire protection services
  • Enhancing recreation and youth programs and facilities

The City would like to hear more from the public as we continue this year’s budget planning process. We are committed to continuing to reflect your priorities in our budget decision-making so our local quality of life is maintained, no matter what happens nationally, regionally or with the economy.
