How to Use the Citizens' Guide to the Budget
This website gives citizens access to the budget for Metro Government of Nashville and Davidson County. Several features are available to help you find information that is interesting to you.
General Budget Information
The Budget Book
The budget book is presented in PDF format. When you click on a link to the budget book, it may take a few minutes to download the PDF file. Also, when the file opens, there may be a short delay while your computer finds the bookmarked location in the file. Links to the budget book will open in a new window.
If you find a budget word that is not familiar to you, check the glossary. Most of the budget key words are defined here. If you do not find the word in the glossary, send an email to OMB@nashville.gov. The Office of Management and Budget will get back with you as soon as they can.
Please note: You may need the latest version of Adobe Reader for all features of this site to work properly. If you are using Safari on a Mac, the links to the budget book on the department pages will not function properly unless you use the Adobe Reader plug-in for Safari. Get Adobe Reader
