What are the most important priorities for the City in 2019-21?
Every two years the City establishes the top priorities to make San Luis Obispo an even better place to live, work, and play. The City Council then matches the resources necessary to achieve these priorities through adopting the budget in June. The adopted budget sets the City’s course of action for the next two years and helps the City to continue to provide high-quality services that maintain an excellent quality of life for the community.
This year, the City implemented the to address significant financial challenges due to increased pension costs. Continuing this progress toward long-term fiscal health, the 2019-21 Financial Plan will emphasize maintaining existing City infrastructure, providing core services, and advancing the Fiscal Health Response Plan objectives (employee concessions, new ways of doing business, operating reductions and new revenues). Given this, it is critical we have an effective process for setting the most important, highest priority things for the City to accomplish in the next two years and this survey is the first step!
All surveys must be completed by December 16, 2018.
