Budgets and Budget Workshops
The Village of Westmont creates and approves an annual budget, which guides the financial operation of the Village of Westmont. The Village operates on a May 1 to April 30 fiscal year. A budget workshop is typically held in April. To ensure government transparency, budget meetings and workshops are open to the public, and are available via the internet. After the workshops the Village prepares a draft budget, which is voted on by the Village Board, typically in late April or early May. After the Village Board approves the preliminary budget the Finance Department compiles a final budget that functions as a policy document, an operations guide, and a communications document. That final budget is typically available by September.
For the Fiscal Year May 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020 (FY 2019-20), the Village Board held a budget workshop on 5/2/2019.
A PDF copy of the preliminary 2018 to 2019 budget summary is available in our Document and Forms section of the website.
Our Document and Forms section of the website also contains PDFs of the final versions of prior budgets. The introductory sections and narratives strive to reduce the level of difficulty for readers who are not familiar with public budgeting systems, yet provides comprehensive information for staff to utilize as financial policy and day-to-day operation guidelines. Information on individual funds contains a line-item printout of the fiscal year budget. This document is intended for staff to use as a tool in managing daily operations.
The Village of Westmont publishes and/or provides numerous financial-related documents as required by State Law as well as our internal protocols to assure Government Transparency.
If you have further questions regarding the budget or any other financial documents, please contact the Finance Department via email.
