2021 Budget

The City of Roeland Park is working on its Fiscal Year 2021 - 2023 Budget. Each year, staff work with the Governing Body to develop the following year’s budget along with two additional years of projections. This longer-term planning process helps guide the Council’s decision-making when it comes to planning for capital improvements and equipment replacement, staffing adjustments, program improvements, and more. Below is a preliminary schedule of future budget meetings and benchmarks for adopting the FY 2021 Budget. All meetings are open to the public.
