Annual Budgets

The City of Port Lavaca annually adopts an operating budget to meet the ongoing needs of its citizens.  Preparation of the annual operating budget is a primary duty of the City Manager’s Office and, once finalized, it is submitted to the City Council for further review and adoption.

The City is a recipient of the GFOA Budget Award.

Distinguished Budget Presentation AwardThe GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program (Budget Awards Program) in 1984 to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA’s best practices on budgeting and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.

Documents submitted to the Budget Awards Program are reviewed by selected members of the GFOA professional staff and by outside reviewers with experience in public-sector budgeting.

The City’s fiscal budget year is October 1st to September 30th.
