Policies

City Budget

The Budget Office is primarily responsible for the development and implementation of the City's annual budget, Fee Schedule, and five-year Capital Improvement Plan.

Budget Overview

The City of Stockton budget is comprised of separate funds. The General Fund is:

  • the primary fund for most day-to-day operations, 
  • the largest portion of the budget, and
  • accounts for all financial resources except those required to be accounted for in another fund.

Sources of revenue for the General Fund include:

  • business tax,
  • fees for services,
  • property tax,
  • sales tax, and
  • utility user tax.

The City’s General Fund reserve policy calls for the City to maintain a 17% operating reserve (approximately two months of expenditures) and establishes additional reserves for known contingencies, unforeseen revenue changes, infrastructure failures, and catastrophic events.

The known contingencies include amounts to address staff recruitment and retention, future CalPERS costs, and City facilities. The policy establishes an automatic process to deposit one-time revenue increases and expenditure savings into the reserves.  

Enterprise Funds

Some City departments charge fees for services provided. The budget for these functions is referred to as Enterprise Funds. These funds are used for operations, similar to private businesses, where the expense of operation is covered by user charges. The Water, Wastewater, and Sewer Utility funds are the City's largest enterprise funds.

Successor Agency to Redevelopment Agency Funds 

The Stockton City Council also acts as the Successor Agency to Redevelopment Agency.  Redevelopment funds are Agency Funds.  

Special/Restricted Funds

Other highly specialized and restricted funds compromise a portion of the City's budget and cannot be used for anything other than the specified purposes.

Per the City’s interfund loan policy, the City does permit loans between funds, but these loans are only to be used to alleviate a temporary cash deficiency. Such loans are not used to balance the budget of the borrowing fund or deter any function or project for which the loaning fund was established. The amount loaned is generally repaid within the same fiscal year.
