Your Tax Dollar at Work

Of the City’s adopted budget, most of the big spending decisions occur within the City’s general fund.

The General Fund has two major sources of funding:

  1. general property taxes
  2. other local taxes combined

These two sources make up 80.4% of the General Fund budget.

The dollar graphic below depicts how the General Fund revenues are spent.
