Annual Revenue Budget
Dublin City Council is required to prepare and adopt a budget for its revenue expenses and incomes each year. Sections 102 and 103 of the Local Government Act 2001 specify the financial procedures governing:
- the preparation of the Budget.
- the Budget Meeting
A programme group classifies income and expenditure in the annual budget . The budget is drafted by the City Manager in consultation with the Corporate Policy Group. However, a local authority is not bound to accept the budget prepared by the City Manager and may adopt a budget with or without amendment. In the adopted budget, the Annual Rate on Valuation is determined to finance the deficiency in the funds of the authority, i.e. the part of the authority's expenditure not met by State grants and miscellaneous receipts.
