2019-20 Annual Budget has Been Approved
(posted 5/22/19)
The City of Tigard Budget Committee approved the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 annual budget at their meeting held on May 18, 2019. The next step in the budgeting process is for the budget to be adopted by the City Council on June 11, 2019. In addition to the city budget, the updated Fees and Charges schedule for the next fiscal year will also need to be reviewed and adopted by the City Council.

The Town Center Development Agency (TCDA) Budget Committee also approved the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 annual budget at the same meeting held on May 18, 2019. Like the city’s budget, the TCDA board, made up of the City Council members and citizen members, must adopt the budget on June 11, 2019.

Both new budgets will take effect on July 1, 2019.

» Town Center Development Agency Proposed Budget

The City of Tigard is a financially stable city with clean financial audits, a strong credit rating from Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s, and a history of creating its budget in the most fiscally responsible manner.

We do have revenue issues, as citizens know from our property tax constraints, which causes the city to have challenges in providing needed service levels. After the defeat of the Local Option Levy in May, 2018, the city implemented its first of two years of service level cuts—$2.5 million each year.

This fiscal year, as you can see from the graphic below, the city was able to obtain most of its $2.5 million in savings from other resources.
Why has Tigard's FY 2020 Budget Outlook Improved
While we are still experiencing lower than needed service levels, this next fiscal year will not see the drastic cuts that we thought we would have to make in order to maintain a fiscally responsible position.

Master Fees and Charges Schedule

City fees and charges are reviewed and adjusted as a part of the budgeting process so that the city can recover costs for providing services.

Some fees (like planning and the street maintenance fee) are adjusted annually based on economic labor indices while other fees are set by outside agencies like Clean Water Services or Washington County.
