The biennial budget provides the framework for everything we do. Our budget is focused on the quality and safety of our workforce, enhancing city services, and developing community partnerships.
Responsible budgeting has enabled the city to add essential staff to increase efficiency of the City; we now have the right people in place to ensure the City of Yelm operates in an economical manner for years to come.
City services are essential to the success of every municipality. This budget dedicates funds for capital improvement projects, including additional storage for our water distribution system, critical upgrades to the Water Reclamation Facility, sidewalk preservation and maintenance, and prioritized street projects. It also focuses on safety, allowing for the hiring of additional police officers, training, and equipment.
We now have the framework for continued growth that supports essential services and continue to invest in services to accommodate future growth.
The City’s budget is balanced, maintains services to the public, and is based on long term financial forecasts that ensure sustainability. The biennial budget was developed with community feedback during open public meetings and adopted by City Council in December, 2018.
