Each year, the Coppell City Council works diligently to ensure that Coppell maintains its high-quality services while also respecting residents' pocketbooks. The City takes pride in its conservative approach to fiscal responsibility and transparency, and continuously receives accolades from outside agencies regarding its financial strategy and prudent budgeting practices. A strong history of effective financial planning has allowed the City of Coppell to respond to both planned and unanticipated impacts with minimal disruption to high-quality services and quality-of-life programs.
The budget process starts with the Coppell community! City staff uses input from residents and businesses to inform proposed projects and programs. As part of the annual budget process, City Council holds numerous public workshops, and residents are encouraged to get involved, attend, and provide feedback!
Coppell's own Marble Slab Creamery is helping the City make the budget process extra sweet this year! Community members who attend the workshops to get the budget scoop will also receive a free scoop of ice cream (while supplies last). The budget workshops will be held at the Cozby Library and Community Commons, 177 N Heartz Road, on the following dates:
