Event Description

This session will provide methods of ongoing analysis of your municipal budget from a “top-down” approach. Discussions will center around identifying cost centers that drive your budget, straightforward ways to develop tracking models, identifying economic factors and trends, and how to communicate major budget trends to elected officials and citizens.

Learning Objectives:  Participants completing this session will be able to:

  • Define the major cost centers in your budget;
  • Define cost centers as externally or internally controlled;
  • Build top-down models for tracking budget trends;
  • Develop “alarm” levels that alert finance people that detailed tracking is needed; and
  • Create one-page reports for village boards, city councils, media, and citizen groups to increase engagement.

Speaker: Julie Zolghadr, Retired Budget Division Manger, City of Springfield
