Needs Assessment and Fiscal Capacity Phase

Financial forecasting is an integral part of our decision making process and during this phase both long range and short range economic and financial trends are forecasted. This update assesses the City's current financial condition and future financial capacity given existing programs and long range plans and objectives. During this phase, citizens are randomly surveyed to assess their satisfaction with City services and various city boards and commissions are invited to share their future priorities. Long range planning for the city's infrastructure needs plays an important role in forecasting short term and long term related operating expenditures.
