The Town Manager presents the annual budget for the Town of Frisco. The annual budget is the financial plan for providing the services of public safety, community planning and development, water services, public works, buildings and grounds maintenance, general administration, marketing, special events, recreational programs, and capital improvements to the Town of Frisco.
The budget process starts in August and continues through November. The approved budget addresses goals previously identified by the Council and the community and incorporates the discussions of Council and staff during the budget process. The annual budget also maintains required reserves to ensure the financial stability of Frisco for future citizens, businesses, and visitors.
The budget is the financial master plan for the Town of Frisco. Like all plans, this budget will change and develop as circumstances arise. As more information becomes available, Council will act to modify this plan to better provide for the needs of the Town.
The Town’s Finance Department compiles the Monthly Financial Report provided to Town Council on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Reports are made available online after they have been presented to the Town Council. In the event a Town Council meeting is canceled, the reports will be made available at the next Town Council meeting.
The Mountain Communities Report is made available on a monthly basis by the City of Steamboat Springs based upon tax information collected by their finance department from several other mountain communities.
The Town of Frisco’s financial statements are audited each year by an independent audit firm and the results of this audit are reported in the comprehensive annual financial report.
The Community Scorecard is a combined “report card” for the Town’s services and activities and the Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR), which is a summarized and condensed overview of the Town’s financial position – Frisco Community Scorecard 2020.
