Our budget helps to develop and communicate the City’s service, policy, operations, and financial plans. The budget concentrates on the goals set by the City Council and furthers the vision of Longview as we are committed to excellence. The City’s mission is to deliver the highest quality municipal services to our citizens and customers, consistent with our community values.

The City of Longview is proud that our budgets have received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States and Canada for the last several years. This award represents the highest achievement in governmental budgeting. We believe the current budget continues to conform to program requirements and will be submitted to GFOA to determine the eligibility for another award.

During the summer of each year, the City Manager presents a budget proposal to City Council for consideration. View the City Manager's Budget Presentation for Fiscal Year 2016-2017 to learn more about the proposal for the upcoming budget year.
