Operating and Capital Budgets

Thanks to Measure C, the six year 0.50% transaction and use tax passed by the voters, the 2018-19 Town of Paradise budgets are balanced and include critical public safety support and road projects/capital improvements that will serve the community for many years. This year marks the 4th year with Measure C funding, and short and long term projections show that expenses will exceed resources after its expiration. In November 2018, Town of Paradise citizens will vote to decide wether or not to extend the temporary tax in order to maintain services. The 2018/19 budget was  designed to "stay the course". The objective is to preserve services provided to the community and not to detour from progress made to stabilize financial health.
