Santa Clarita City Council members and city commissioners will meet Tuesday for a joint study session to discuss the state of the city’s budget.

As a regular part of the budget process, City Council members and members of the city’s Arts Commission, Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission and Planning Commission will meet to receive information about and discuss the budget outlook for the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. and be held in the Century Room of Santa Clarita City Hall, 23920 Valencia Blvd.

At another joint study session on the budget in February, City Manager Ken Striplin said many general fund revenue categories in the city are back to pre-recession levels.

But he also said there are several matters that need to be addressed in the next budget, including maintenance of the city’s aging infrastructure and future funding liabilities such as a permanent Canyon Country Community Center and possibly a library with meeting rooms in Saugus.

The city’s budget planning process typically takes around six months and culminates in June when City Council members officially vote to adopt a budget.

The 2014-2015 fiscal year begins July 1.
