I hope the community enjoyed the financial presentation at last Tuesday’s City Council meeting. It is ordinarily a routine item that gets little attention, but we decided to “push it out” more publicly in today’s cynical environment and assumptions of misdeeds by public officials. The City is in a great cash position, but not so good on an annual operating budget basis. We simply spend more than revenues received, and we have more work to do. I’m not going to cry poverty regarding the City’s finances. It’s self-defeating and it’s not true.
