Operating and Capital Budgets

Thanks to Measure C, (the 0.50% six year transactions and use tax approved by the voters November 2014), the 2017-18 Town of Paradise General Fund budget is balanced, critical public safety services are maintained, and many road projects/capital improvements are planned that will serve the community for many years to come. The 2017-18 fiscal year marks the halfway point with Measure C funding. It is important that the Town keep making forward progress -- slowly but surely-- with a cautious regard toward maintaining and improving the Town’s financial health.
