Budget surplus enhances essential city services

Unlike most cities and counties slashing essential city services,
the City of Riverside is looking at a $3.5 million budget surplus from
last fiscal year.  Thanks to the prudent spending plan approved
by the City Council, tightfisted monitoring of expenditures by
department heads, and higher-than-projected sales and property
tax revenues, Riverside is in the unique position of adding funds
to this year’s services and projects.
