A Note About Municipal Services Provided by Other Agencies
As you complete this exercise, please remember the City of Elk Grove is not a full service City. Many municipal services the residents of Elk Grove receive are provided by other agencies. The City works closely with its partner agencies to provide the best quality of life to residents. For example, parks, fire, water, health and human services (including mental health), and education are all provided by other agencies which receive separate allocations of your tax dollars.
