City Council Budget Priorities
As part of the 2012 Budget process, the Council tasked itself to review and rank the various budget program categories. These rankings will be used as a guide to determine which programs receive priority funding in 2012 – a process necessary to ensure the City’s long-term financial sustainability. As a means of guiding this ranking process, the City Council developed the following criteria:
Budget Program Ranking Criteria
On a scale of 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest), each program/function should be rated based on how important or effective it is in achieving the community's vision and goals as expressed in Imagine Roseville 2025, the 2030 Comprehensive Plan, and the Parks & Recreation Master Plan.
In assigning the ratings, the following should be considered:
- How does the program/function establish and maintain our community's overall high quality of life, ensure the health and well-being of our citizens, and/or contribute to the economic and environmental well-being of Roseville?
- How does the program/function help to ensure that city services meet industry best practice standards which contribute to the achievement of the community vision and goals?
- How does the program/function ensure that city services are provided in the most cost-effective manner possible, while still producing measurable results toward achieving the community vision and goals?
The Council’s budget program rankings are segregated as follows:
