Information on the City's budget, finances and employee salaries and benefits


The City uses an interactive budget portal to provide citizens with an in-depth and friendly view of the City's financial data. The online portal provides a look at the City's budget, expenditures and the Capital Improvement Program (CIP).


Users have the ability to view the City's financial data, displayed in table, chart or graph format. The interactive features allow for searching by departmental or other types of budget categories. The CIP portion of the site organizes information by funding category, funding source or by project. Users will also find project photos, the current phase of the project and a map showing the project's location. Click here for a brief video tutorial about navigating through the interactive budget portal.

The goals are increased transparency, accountability and efficiency of City operations while providing responsive services to our citizens. Now, the City's financial data joins the other online public records. We are excited to share this with our community and we encourage you to use the portal to see where your taxpayer dollars are going.

We welcome your feedback



The City of Newport Beach (City) operates on a fiscal year budget from July 1 to June 30. The City Council is required to adopt a balanced annual budget on or before June 30 of each year. The Finance Department manages the City's annual budget process. Amendments to the approved budget are prepared and adopted in accordance to Council Policy F-3

The budget process starts with each department working with the Finance Department to develop the revenues and expenditures estimates for the coming fiscal year (referred to as the operating budget); this process normally begins in the winter. Then, the City Manager confers with each department director and the Finance Department to review and revise each department's proposed operating budget. When the City Manager has a draft of the proposed City-wide budget developed, it is first presented to the City's Finance Committee. Once the Finance Committee has vetted the operating budget, it is presented to the City Council for review.

At the same time as the operating budget is being prepared and reviewed, the City's Public Works Department is developing the Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP includes the significant capital projects and infrastructure improvements planned for the upcoming fiscal year. 

The adopted budget is intended to be a reflection of City policies, goals and priorities. It communicates to citizens and staff what program allocation decisions have been approved by the City Council.
