What We Do
The City of Rockville Charter requires the City Manager to submit an annual budget to the Mayor and Council at least one month before the beginning of each fiscal year. In addition to the operating budget, a five-year Capital Improvements Program (CIP) budget is presented for the Mayor and Council's consideration. The budget is approved in the form of an appropriations ordinance. The City's fiscal year begins on July 1.

Operating Budget

The Operating Budget is an annual document that provides stakeholders and staff with detailed information about the City’s operations and spending. The Operating Budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide, and communications device. The preparation of the budget is guided by the City's major policy documents.

Capital Improvements Program (CIP) Budget
The CIP maps the City’s capital investment plan over a five-year period. The CIP is both a fiscal and planning device that allows the City to inventory and monitor all capital project costs, funding sources, departmental responsibilities, and project schedules.
