In the event the governing body does not pass the budget by June 30, T.C.A. § 6-56-210 takes effect. It states:

If for any reason a budget ordinance is not adopted prior to the beginning of the next fiscal year, the appropriations for the last fiscal year shall become the appropriations for the next fiscal year, until the adoption of the new budget ordinance.

While this provision exists, municipalities are strongly urged to meet the June 30 deadline.  Also, the state OSLF requires cities to file a continuation budget resolution.
