Proposed budget reductions for Parks, Recreation & Libraries

As we prepared for the 2017-18 Fiscal Year, all General Fund departments (Parks, Recreation & Libraries, Police, Fire, Public Works, and Development Services) were asked to develop a net zero budget. The challenge of a flat budget is that we need to reduce services to absorb increasing costs and unfunded mandates. In addition to developing a flat budget, General Fund departments were also asked to make recommendations to help close the $2 million projected budget gap. Throughout the budget process, we examined many scenarios with the goal of balancing fiscal soundness and minimizing impacts to customers.
