City of Williamsburg Budget Information
The City Budget Document is a solid plan identified and approved annually by the City Council. The budget meets all statutory requirements of the State of Kansas. The City of Williamsburg operates on a calendar fiscal year beginning on January 1. The budget document attempts to present and explain each Fund separately. A link to the document is provided for the reader, along with highlights of explanatory information intended to educate the reader about the sources and uses of the primary funds. The categories are highlighted below:
- GOVERNMENT FUNDS – The General Fund is the first governmental fund presented in the Budget Document which is divided into the following departments: Finance and Administration, Public Works, Parks, Municipal Court, Information Technology and Planning/Codes.
- SPECIAL REVENUE FUNDS – These include Special Highway which are the funds the city receives from the State of Kansas Gas Tax. These monies are used to maintain our residential streets.
- ENTERPRISE FUNDS – These funds derive revenue from fees for services rather than taxes. Each enterprise fund consists of an Operating Fund, a Reserve Fund, and a Debt Service Fund. The City has Water, Wastewater and Refuse Funds. Water and Wastewater all have their own operating fund, reserve, and debt service which are considered together for auditing purposes. The exception is the Refuse fund which is a contracted service fund.
