The Bettendorf Books: City Completes Annual Budget Process

FEBRUARY 26, 2024 - Just like you or your family, the City of Bettendorf has a budget. It helps keep our neighborhoods safe, allows us to build and maintain streets and structures, enables us to beautify our parks and organize recreation programs, the list goes on and on.

The budget provides accurate and timely financial guidance and services to the Mayor, City Council, City Administrator, and all Department Heads so they can prepare their own budgets, manage those budgets, and better understand the City’s financial performance – but it also ensures that we use your taxpayer dollars responsibly.

That’s why our City’s budget process is completely transparent. Starting in February 2024, you can watch that process unfold over the course of nearly two months. To see the schedule, go to at anytime or view it below:
