The City of Effingham's fiscal year is May 1 - April 30 of each year. The budget establishes direction for the implementation of programs and services for the upcoming year. The budget details the revenues we collect and how we allocate those funds to invest in the community and provide efficient and effective public services. The budget is developed by carefully evaluating available resources and applying sound administrative practices.
Capital Improvement Plans (CIP) & Maintenance Improvement Plans (MIP)
The City Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and Maintenance Improvement Plan are multi-year projections covering a five-year periods that assist the City's administrators in planning for long-term expenditures. The CIP guides us in planning for large infrastructure projects, such as sewer and water expansions or the building or new facilities. The plan also informs our vision for the purchase of high-cost equipment items. The MIP is our long-term blueprint for the maintenance of our infrastructure and equipment. By maintaining a comprehensive and accurate plan for maintenance, our City staff can keep infrastructure in good shape for decades longer and keep our equipment running for years longer than it would without this type of plan.
