Welcome to the City of Chadron Budget simulation. It is set up to help visualize the budget and how changes affect the entire budget, as well as get your input on how you would like your tax dollars spent.

This is the Preliminary Budget Request for Fiscal Year 2021-2022. The final version will be adopted in September of 2020 and become effective October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022.

Revenues are on the left of the screen, Expenses are on the right. Clicking a color on the spending chart or the revenue bar will take you to the corresponding department or revenue details. Department numbers from the City's Budget document are to the right of the department names. When opened, a category amount may be increased or decreased by clicking the + or - button. Please also leave notes on your changes by clicking the conversation bubble. The accounts that are set by contract or statute are locked and may not be changed.

Click the Submit button to submit your suggested changes.

To see the Major Fund Expenses in line item, click the info icon then "More Details".

To see the General Fund Revenues click the info icon on Property Taxes then "More Details".

The bar at the top shows green when in balance or in surplus. It shows red when in deficit. The bar reflects the following funds: General, Ambulance, Streets, Water and Wastewater. The other funds, while showing on the lists, have been factored out of the balance equation.
