Previous budget documents:
In 2013, the City achieved the highest bond rating possible (AAA) by Standard & Poor's Rating Service. A bond rating represents an unbiased assessment of the credit worthiness of an entity's debt obligation in the public financial market. The higher the rating, the stronger the borrowing power and the lower the interest rates will be for capital projects funding. The City's AAA rating was reaffirmed in 2014.
Outside Agency Funding Request
Each year during budget planning for the next fiscal year, the City provides the opportunity for community organizations to apply for funding. Organizations must meet certain criteria in order to be eligible to receive and considered for funding.
