Revenues generated in the City are responsible for the maintenance of city services. These services include police, fire, infrastructure, library and other services that are critical to the quality of life that residents and businesses enjoy. Often, individuals assume that the bulk of services are paid through payment of local property taxes. The purpose of this section is to identify the sources of revenue and break down contributors to these sources of dollars that fund vital municipal services. By articulating these important contributors, policy that supports a balance of revenues can be maintained successfully.
