As stated in the press release, the budget process was mostly delayed due to Council's request that a zero-based budget be presented. Zero-based budgeting is a budgeting process that allocates funding based on program efficiency and necessity rather than budget history. This means building the City's budget from the ground up, which takes time and collaboration.
