Persistent fiscal responsibility to balance budget

From a fiscal point of view, tremendous progress has been made in Salt Lake City, both last year and during the past seven years. Persistent fiscal responsibility has resulted in far less money being spent than budgeted, far more money being raised than budgeted, and an enormous increase in the city's reserve fund. Last year, actual expenditures by city departments were $2.8 million less than the Council authorized in the budget and actual revenues were $8.9 million more than anticipated in the budget. From fiscal year 1999 to fiscal year 2006, the fund balance has increased from $20.4 million to $31.6 million an astounding 55% increase in the city's reserves.
