Proposed City of Carlsbad Budget
The concept of “connection” was top of mind as this budget was developed. First and foremost, we want to stay connected to what has always made Carlsbad special, as an organization and a place, while turning our gaze firmly to the future. With your leadership, we are forging an even greater connection to the community. This year’s spending priorities have been directly influenced by input from our residents. You will see a number of technology initiatives and new staffing to help us establish and utilize digital connections that have the power to improve the service we provide while gaining efficiencies in the use of taxpayer money. Most of all, this year’s budget strengthens the city’s connection to its core mission and the sound business practices needed to thrive in today’s complex environment.
