The Finance Division is primarily responsible for the development and preparation of the City of Novato's annual operating budget and Capital Improvement Program budget.

The City of Novato adopts its budget each June for the following fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30. The budget, while a financial document, is also an important policy document, outlining the City Council’s priorities for the upcoming year and showing where the City's funds will be allocated.
