What is the Budget?
The budget is the financial plan for the Town of Bennett. It details planned operating and capital expenditures. The budget document includes the appropriated/proposed expenditures for a given year and the projected means of funding them. In addition, a long-range financial plan is developed using the prior year budget as the starting point.
The budget document serves as a policy instrument, financial planning tool, an operations guide, and a communications device.
