Dollars in budget surplus

Maintain positive or net zero budget surplus by the end of the fiscal year

We have done an excellent job of being a well run city. Although not perfect, the city has really turned around in regard to dollars in budget surplus. We believe this is primarily due to our newfound ability to tightly manage our expenses.

Dollars in budget surplus are beneficial to maintaining financial health & economic vitality. When there is more in the budget surplus the company is doing well and can put more money into other areas of need.

This measure should be tracked because it allows the city to know when it has more money that can be allocated and used in different departments. Without this tracking the city would not be able to manage its money as efficiently.
