Financial Reports & Budgets

The City publishes several financial reports. These reports are available to City employees and the public, and include the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), Budget, and Master Fee Schedule. The CAFR includes discussion, analysis, operating results and certain statistical data for the City of Burlingame.

Budget Information
Every year, the City of Burlingame develops an annual Business Plan to help the City Council prioritize programs and services for funding and to determine future goals for our community. The Annual Budget is prepared as an integrated part of this process to allocate funding for these programs and services for the upcoming fiscal year. It also offers citizens a chance to review priorities, and through public meetings during the budget review and adoption process, offer suggestions and input to the City Council on those priorities.

Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports
The Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFR) are prepared by City staff and audited by an independent accounting firm annually. This report is prepared following the guidelines recommended by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada, and the standards adopted by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board. The department has received the Government Finance Officers Association Awards for Excellence in Comprehensive Annual Financial Reporting for 12 consecutive years.
