The City of Cambridge budget comes from City Council discussions with staff which are informed by past results and input received from residents in a variety of ways. While the City Council takes final action on the budget each December, developing the budget is a year-round process.
The public is invited to attend any or all City Council meetings where the budget is discussed. The City also provides additional engagement opportunities for residents who wish to participate in the budget process.
