The City of Stockton budget is comprised of separate funds. The General Fund is the primary fund for most day-to-day operations, is the largest portion of the budget, and is used to account for all financial resources except those required to be accounted for in another fund.
Sources of revenue for the General Fund include:
Some City Departments charge fees for services provided. The budget for these functions is referred to as Enterprise Funds. These funds are used for operations, similar to private businesses, where the expense of operation is covered by user charges.
The Stockton City Council also acts as the Successor Agency to Redevelopment Agency. Redevelopment funds are Agency Funds.
Other highly specialized and restricted funds compromise a smaller portion of the City's budget and cannot be used for anything other than the specific purposes for which they were designed.
