Fiscal 2017 Citizen's Guide to the Budget

The Fiscal 2017 Citizen's Guide to the Budget provides residents with a four-page overview of how the City is allocating its resources. 

The document also highlights the progress the City has made in key outcome areas -- Better Schools, Safer Streets, Stronger Neighborhoods, A Growing Economy, Innovative Government, A Cleaner City and A Healthier City. 

The Citizen's Guide to the Budget is organized into four sections:

Page 1: Our Accomplishments
Page 2: Our Performance
Page 3: Revenue & Expenditures
Page 4: Our Challenges & Our Investments 
 

The guide is designed according to the standards set forth by the Association of Government Accountants Citizen-Centric Reporting (CCR) initiative. The CCR inititiative aims to support "innovative means" of communication of government financial information between cities and their residents.
