The Town of Indian River Shores's fiscal year begins on October 1 and ends on September 30. Budget adoption follows a thorough review of the preliminary budget. After review by staff, the Town Manager and the Town's Finance Committee, Town Council reviews the proposed budget during one or more workshops during the summer.
The preliminary budget is also available on the Town's website for review by the general public during August and September prior to its adoption. Town Council adopts the budget in September after two public hearings, held pursuant to Florida Statute, which provide an opportunity for public comment. After adoption, portions of the budget may be amended during the fiscal year by Council through formal resolutions during Council meetings.
