Operating and Capital Budgets

Thanks to Measure C, the six year 0.50% transaction and use tax passed by the voters, the 2017-18 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 halfway point with Measure C funding, so it is critical to keep a watchful eye on the Town's finances. It is important that the Town keeps moving forward - slowly but surely, with a cautious regard toward maintaing the progress made in improving financial health.
