DISCUSSION
This report reflects the City's Fiscal Year 2019 (FY 19) budget performance. The information provided is unusually preliminary as the books for FY 19 are not as close to final as they normally would be at this time of year.

If there are any significant changes to figures, staff will provide an update to the City Council.

The City has 139 financial funds summarized and reported as 37 budgetary fund groups (35 fund groups with expenditures) covering 23 departments, including the separately managed Water and Harbor Departments.
