  • To explore details of the budget, the city has created a new online program called OpenVB. It’s an easy-to-use, graphical alternative to wading through hundreds of pages of technical documents. Citizens can focus on any aspect of the budget – revenues, expenses, operations and capital projects – in great detail. Every detail is available, at the big-picture level or at the level of individual line items.

To read budget documents, either in online flip-book format or to download as a PDF documents, visit Three documents are available: an executive summary, a detailed operating budget and a detailed six-year capital program.


Two public hearings are scheduled:

  • April 23 at 6 p.m., Green Run High School, 1700 Dahlia Drive

  • April 28 at 6 p.m., City Council chamber, 2401 Courthouse Drive
