You may peruse the City of Hermosa Beach's complete Adopted Budget and Five Year Capital Improvement Program 2019-20 or select individual sections below.  The City Council adopted the Fiscal Year 2019-20 Budget and Capital Improvement Program on June 11, 2019.

The City Manager is required to submit a preliminary budget to the City Council on or before May 15th of each year. One or two public workshops are held in May and June to review the budget and receive public input. One formal public hearing is held in June, prior to budget adoption. 

The City Council must adopt an annual budget, by resolution, on or before June 30 for the coming fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). If the budget is not adopted by that date, the preliminary budget, except for capital outlays, goes into effect until the budget is adopted. 

The budget may be amended during the year as necessary. A Midyear Budget Review is conducted in February, at which time adjustments to revenue estimates and appropriations are made. Expenditures may not exceed appropriations at the fund level. The City Manager may approve transfers of appropriation within funds; transfers of appropriations from one fund to another require City Council approval.

Budgets are adopted for all governmental and proprietary funds on a basis consistent with generally accepted accounting principles.
