Budget Information

Welcome to the City of Webster Groves Budget Information page. If you have budget questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact Eric Peterson, Assistant City Manager/Director of Finance and Administration, at petersone@webstergrovesmo.gov

Budget Process

The City Manager, with the assistance of the City Executive Leadership Team prepares a Proposed Budget for presentation to the City Council each spring. A Public Hearing is then held on the budget and the City Council approves the budget in June for the next fiscal year. Budget updates are presented publicly to the Council quarterly with estimates and projections on the budget vs actual expenditures. Final actual expenditures are not accounted for until the completion of the City's annual audit and issuance of the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report. 

Fiscal Year

The City of Webster Groves operates on a fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. A fiscal year is referenced as the year in which the budget ends. For example, the Fiscal Year 2022 budget is named FY2022 as it ends in 2022 but is adopted in 2021. 

Upcoming Fiscal Year 2023 Budget (July 1, 2022 - June 30, 2023)

The City will commence work on the FY2023 Budget on January 25th with the internal budget kickoff. The recommended budget will be presented to the City Council on May 3. There will be multiple internal and public opportunities to provide feedback on the FY2023 budget.
