Annual Budget Report 

Budget Process

The annual budget process projects the City’s financial position and the dollars needed to provide services to the citizens of Windsor Heights. The budget report is required to be filed annually with the County Auditor as well as the Iowa Department of Management.

Prior to the budget filing in March each year, the City Council performs a budget development process through various meetings in January and February. 

State law requires reporting of the FY22 City Budget by 3/31/21. If necessary, City Council budget approval could occur later than the 3/15/21 date shown in this schedule.
