The City of Webster Groves operates on a fiscal year from July 1 to June 30. A fiscal year is referenced as the year in which the budget ends. For example, the Fiscal Year 2023 budget is named FY2023 as it ends in 2023 but is adopted in 2022. 

The  budget for each Fiscal Year is proposed by the City Manager, with the assistance of the City Executive Leadership Team. The proposed budget is developed no later than 30 days prior to the beginning of the Fiscal Year. A Public Hearing is held on the budget and the City Council approves the budget in June for the next fiscal year. Budget updates are presented publicly to the Council quarterly with estimates and projections on the budget vs actual expenditures. Final actual expenditures are not accounted for until the completion of the City's annual audit and issuance of the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report.
