The City of Twin Falls budget is a sustainable plan of action that details how strategic planning priorities and goals will be achieved. It also maintains service levels despite rising costs and declining revenue streams by focusing on the future, examining current efficiencies, collaborating with other jurisdictions in economic development, investing in technology, judiciously weighing proposals to build or expand programs.

The budget adheres to the city’s financial policies and enhances the city’s financial position while providing citizens with a comprehensive view of proposed funding for the city’s day-to-day operations, planned capital improvements, as well as principal and interest payments for outstanding debt and capital leases. Operations are organized by departments to help the public understand how resources are allocated. For more information about the City Budget please visit TFID.ORG/budget
