Western Municipal Budget

As stewards of public money, Western is committed to continually improving transparency and accountability. Taking a conservative budgeting and investment approach, every dollar received from water or wastewater (sewer) rates, property taxes, investment returns, and federal and state grants is carefully accounted for using government-approved accounting practices. 

In June 2020, Western’s Board of Directors adopted the biennial budget for fiscal years 2020-21 and 2021-22. The adopted budget reflects Western’s vision and strategic priorities for providing essential services to the communities we serve. The budget meets the challenges of increasing costs, while ensuring the highest level of quality water and wastewater (sewer) services to our customers.
