After the final approval of the budget by the City Council, only limited types of changes may be made. A department may transfer its own funds internally from one expenditure category to another should the need arise. Money cannot be moved from one department to another without approval of the City Council, as recommended by the City Manager.
Supplementary appropriations that may be needed require the recommendation of the City Manager and approval of the City Council. Sufficient funds must be available for such appropriation. If you have any questions, please email the Department of Budget and Evaluation.
