Municipal Budget: The Finance Department is primarily responsible for developing the Rio Grande City’s Municipal Budget, which establishes spending priorities for each Fiscal Year (FY), which runs from October 1 through September 30.  The Finance Director works in conjunction with the department directors and the City Manager to deliver a proposed budget to the City Commission.  The Commission then reviews the proposed budget, makes appropriate and necessary changes, and adopts the budget before the end of each fiscal year.
