Overview of the budget process
Approving Columbia Association’s (CA) budget is one of the key tasks CA’s Board of Directors undertakes every year. During this important process, the Board sets limits for the Annual Charge and membership rates, determines investments in the different programs and services CA offers and allocates funds for capital projects.
The budget input and approval process culminates in late February when the budget for the upcoming fiscal year is approved. CA’s annual budgets begin on May 1 and end April 30 the following year.
Village boards, advisory committees, community groups and individual residents are encouraged to participate in online input opportunities, Resident Speakout and special information sessions throughout this process. It is important to us that your priorities are heard.
