2023-2027 Five Year Plan to be Discussed

Sidney City Hall Sign

On Tuesday September 6, City Council will discuss the 2023-2027 Five Year Financial Plan.

Our city has a time-honored tradition of creating a five-year budgetary cycle. Through this plan, we craft and shape what the city will look like well into the future. This policy also allows us to forecast our operating and capital expenditures so that the city will make sound and conservative decisions along the way. 

This process is the culmination of countless hours of hard work and labor by several staff members. Their time, deliberation, and dedication are what helps keep our city fiscally secure and guides every decision we make. Many assumptions must be used to prepare a Five-Year Plan. The more important of these assumptions include:

  • Maintaining minimum cash fund balance reserves to preserve financial integrity
  • Moderate growth in income tax collections
  • Moderate fee and utility revenue charges
  • Cost increases to remain at moderate levels
  • Modest wage increases through 2027
  • Targeted staffing additions

Special attention was given for capital improvement project funding to focus on achieving City Council goals and Comprehensive Plan strategies.

A copy of the proposed 2023-2027 Five Year Financial Plan is available on the city’s website. All are encouraged to review the document to learn more.
