Budget submission deadlines are set and guidelines provided for managers to use in the preparation of base and supplemental budget requests. Division and program managers developed their budgets at the line-item level with input from the Finance Director and from employees within their respective sections. Upon submission, the proposed line-item budgets were reviewed by the Fire Chief, the Assistant Chiefs, the Finance Director, and the responsible employee(s). Necessary modifications were made, reviewed, and finalized in the line-item budgets before inclusion in the budget. Throughout this process, the Governing Board's were updated regularly on the budget’s progress and informed of any items that may have had a significant variance over the previous year’s budget.
