            Why is this goal important?

            It is important that we maximize the percentage of tax dollars that go to service the citizens of Carson City. While there is a cost to "doing business", we want to minimize the cost to support our citizen-facing departments, such as public works, parks & recreation, sheriff, fire, health & human services, the library and community development.

            How are we measuring this goal?

            We are taking the total department expenses of internal departments (human resources, information technology, treasurer's office, city manager's office, finance, purchasing, clerk's office, internal audit, facilities management, fleet maintenance, plus costs for insurance, worker's comp and group insurance) and dividing by total city expenses.

            What progress are we making toward this goal?

            We are currently achieving this goal and while the percentage has been increasing over the past five years, the percent of internal expenses has actually decreased in the past year, implying that we are getting more efficient in providing services internally within the city.

            FOR MORE INFORMATION:

            The Open Budget and Open Expenditures portion of the Transparency section of our website gives you the ability to be able to explore expenses in each of the service departments as well as for overall city budget and expenses.
