The Town of Trophy Club uses a program-based budgeting process. Each budgeting unit or division is given a target or “baseline” funding level based upon the previous year’s funding level. With a few exceptions, no capital assets, wages and benefits, or one-time packages are included in baseline funding. Any funding request that represents new expenditures and programs, or that is in excess of baseline funding, must be submitted as a supplemental request. These supplemental requests may be new equipment, personnel, or service level increases.
The Town has earned the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the Budget from the Government Finance Officers Association for the past six consecutive years.
