What's Happening

The Tentative Budget is a working document; it is Phase 1 of the Town of Canandaigua budgeting process. The Tentative Budget was developed by the following individuals:

Pam Helming, Budget Officer/Town Supervisor,
Jim Fletcher, Highway Superintendent/ Water Superintendent/Parks Maintenance Asst,
Doug Finch, Director of Development,
Jean Chrisman, Town Clerk,
David Prull, Town Justice
Marlene Murnan, Acting Assessor,
Ray Henry, Town Historian, Ray Henry,
Dennis Brewer, Director of Parks and Recreation.

Prior to projecting their 2015 revenues and expenditures, this group of elected officials and Department Managers first evaluated historical spending. After separating out the mandated requirements and fixed costs, which include many of our ‘big ticket’ expenses and are out of our control, we looked at how best to meet the departmental needs while keeping in mind the Town Board’s desire to stay within the tax cap limit.

The Town Board will now use the preliminary information contained in the tentative budget as a starting point for developing a budget that meets the needs and desires of our growing community and is in line with various regulatory requirements and the tax cap. The Town Board will work with other elected officials, Department Manger’s and our constituents to make this happen.

In keeping with our commitment to provide easier access to public information, the Tentative Budget is posted on our website. Hard copies are available from the Town Clerk. Interested citizens should know we have made an attempt to make the budget more user friendly. This was done by breaking down larger accounts into smaller, more detailed accounts. In some areas of the budget, we have also incorporated detailed text. This is not to say the format is perfect….there is still room to improve and we will continue to do so.
