Scottsdale’s annual Report to Our Citizens is available online

Did you know that Scottsdale opened 7.5 miles of new trails in the preserve and improved green waste recycling from single family homes by 7 percent within the past year?

This information, and more, is found in the latest annual Report to Our Citizens, which covers the fiscal year that ended in June. The four-page document is now available online.

This overview summarizes information included in the budget and other documents also available on the city’s website. 

Each day this month, we're sharing information from the collection via Facebooklinks to external site,Twitterlinks to external site and Instagramlinks to external site to help residents and visitors learn about our city.  The social media campaign is one way we’re showing what we’ve accomplished and how the city delivers services. Follow along using #Scottsdale2017.

The City also has several other short pieces that provide insight into specific topics:

  • community profile  – Scottsdale’s history, business, tourism and special events  
  • city leadership –the city’s organization chart, elected official bios, and photos of key city staff
  • demographics  – stats on population, residents, housing and employment           
  • city and community facilities – infographics on public health, safety and quality of life services and facilities

About the Citizen-Centric Reporting Initiative

This format has been developed by the Association of Government Accountants and is similar to those issued by other local and state governments throughout the country. 

The association’s Citizen-Centric Government Reporting Initiative encourages governments to produce and publish an annual ‘state of the government’ report that is no more than four pages long. 

The document is designed to be visually appealing, and provide understandable information to citizens about the financial condition and performance of the city’s government. 

Scottsdale received a “Certificate of Excellence in Citizen-Centric Reporting” for each report issued since 2010.
