2025 Budget and Business Plan - City of Cambridge

The budget is the City's plan for the coming period, expressed in dollars. It is prepared taking into consideration community input and direction from City Council.

The budget is made up of three parts:

Operating Budget - Annual operations of City facilities and services, primarily funded through property taxes and user fees, excluding water and sewer.

Water and Sewer Budget - Annual operations of water and sewer distribution, funded through user rates.

Capital Budget - Capital program for all City projects, funded through taxes, water and sewer fees, development charges, debt, grants, or other reserve funds.

The City is seeking feedback for the upcoming 2025 budget. This feedback will help directly inform staff in preparing their budget submissions.
