Municipal finances

The municipal financial information is based on the data provided to the State Treasury’s Municipal Financial Information Service by the municipalities themselves. The municipal budget and financial plan information will be provided to the State Treasury on an annual basis. The report package provided each year includes information on four years: the previous year, the following year (i.e. the budget year) and the following two years covered by the financial plans.
