The City of Hopewell welcomes your participation in the annual budget
process and your input in the development of the annual budget.
The process is structured to allow and encourage residents to voice
their opinions about the services the City should provide to its
citizens. Budget planning for the fiscal year will begin in
December of each year. There are generally City Budget work
sessions in April and May. The City Manager, as required by the
City Charter, must present a budget to City Council 60 days before the
end of the fiscal year. In April and May, City Council reviews
and considers the proposed budget. Hearings are also held in
April and May to solicit public input. Council must adopt the
next year's budget before the last day of June each year. Again,
the City welcomes your input in the development of the Annual
Budget. If you have any questions concerning the budget process
or on the budget in general, please contact the Finance Director at
(804) 541-2306 during regular business hours.
The City of Hopewell recognizes that non-profit organizations fill an important role in improving the quality of life for our community. To encourage non-profit organizations to provide services that affect the welfare of residents of Hopewell, the City has established a system to award monetary grants to qualified non-profit organizations.
