Section 15-105 Budget and Reports.

The Commission shall annually prepare and adopt a budget that incorporates the City goals adopted by the City Council.  The budget shall be prepared and adopted in accordance with state law and submitted to the Council in conjunction and in conformity with the City’s budget process, for inclusion as a part of the total City budget.  If authorized by state law, the City Council shall be the budget committee for the Commission and shall have the duties and responsibilities of a budget committee as provided in state law.  In exercising its responsibilities as a budget committee, however, the primary goal of the City Council shall be to assure that the budget is aligned with the City’s adopted policy goals and priorities.  As soon as possible after the close of each fiscal year, the Commission shall prepare and present a comprehensive annual report to the City Council that evaluates the activities of the Commission with respect to the City’s adopted visions and goals.  [New sec.
