Each year, the Finance Office assists the town supervisor in preparing a preliminary budget for the coming year. From April to September, the town comptroller works with the town supervisor and town staff to prepare the tentative budget. In mid-September, the tentative budget is presented to the town board and the community. After it is presented to the town board, the tentative budget becomes the preliminary budget. It is then made available for public review and comment at a public hearing held in early October. After the public hearing, the town board reviews all comments and develops the final budget. The town board then adopts the final budget in late October at a legislative session. After that, the adopted budget for the Town of Penfield is submitted to the County of Monroe.

The annual budget process in Penfield includes a multi-year outlook by taking into account the projections and changes that are anticipated for coming years. The multi-year budget helps the supervisor and town board prepare for future adjustments in New York State mandates, healthcare costs, and other mandatory expenses. This budgeting approach also evaluates major capital improvement projects so the implementation of such projects is included in future operating budgets.
