Community Outreach Update on our Fiscal Sustainability

The City will be continuing to update you on the status of our efforts to achieve long-term fiscal sustainability for our City while protecting the quality of life services our residents and those doing business in the City expect and deserve.

Thank you to the hundreds of residents who have participated to date through these meetings and through our online survey. We were gratified to hear that the community values the work that we do and the services our City provides. Moving forward, we are eager to continue our public outreach on service priorities as the City continues to go through its 2018-2019 budget process. 

As our community is aware, depleted local revenues, historical State takeaways, and reduced City funds due to an increase in online purchases have left Placentia with a $6.1 million structural deficit. Because of this, certain basic City services and maintenance continue to be deferred. Over $3.2 million a year for the past 7 years in street and road maintenance have been deferred. 

In response to community feedback prioritizing public safety, Placentia currently maintains a proactive Police presence in our neighborhoods, parks and schools, with anti-drug and anti-gang police officers, youth violence prevention and gang-related graffiti programs to help keep our kids off the streets and out of trouble. With our current structural deficit, these services may be reduced in the years to come, impacting our quality of life and our property values. 

The City will continue to engage our residents about our fiscal challenges and solicit input on your service priorities and recommendations for creating new revenues and/or reducing costs.
