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.
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.
