The Town of Pantego uses a program-based budgeting process. Each budgeting unit or division is given a target or "baseline" funding level based upon the previous year's funding level. Any funding request that represents new expenditures and programs, or that is in excess of baseline funding, must be submitted as a separate request or "package." These packages may be either a new or restoration request for resources, depending upon the budgeting unit's funding target. Below are the documents that are used in the discussion, planning and development of the annual operating budget.
