Tax dollars at work
The City provides a vast array of services to its residents. These services are funded by property, sales, earnings, profits and utility taxes; enterprise charges; grants and other revenue sources. The services provided by the City are categorized into six major programmatic groups: economic vitality; environmental and structural preservation; public safety and protection; beautification and recreation; policy management; and health and neighborhood services. More than 75 percent of the City’s expenditures occur in the first three groups.
