Annual Budgets

The annual budget is created each year by staff and then reviewed, changed, and adopted by the Blaine City Council. In addition to the general fund, there are specific budget plans for the economic development, charitable gambling, and communications special revenue funds. Also included are the capital equipment fund, and the water, sewer, refuse, and storm drainage enterprise funds.

Blaine has a history of responsible fiscal management and the current budget continues that trend while addressing the needs of a growing community. The City takes pride in the ability to provide quality city services at a good value. The tax rate in Blaine has remained steady or been lowered for several years and Blaine continues to rank as one of the lowest taxed cities in Anoka County.
