To help with implementation of the City’s 10-Year Financial Sustainability Plan (10YFSP), the City Manager appointed 13 community members to serve on the Financial Sustainability Citizens Advisory Committee. One of the primary goals of the committee was to provide input to the City Manager as the City prepares to put a measure on the ballot to renew the 2010 maintenance and operations levy for basic public safety, parks, recreation, and community services. The current levy expires in 2016 and, as part of the 10YFSP, Council recommended that the City engage residents in a discussion prior to placing the measure on the ballot.

The committee learned about current City services, finances, and the City’s 10YFSP. They looked at whether basic services are being met and how best to maintain the delivery of services to Shoreline residents.

Staff provided information on revenue sources available to provide services, service delivery alternatives, and analyzed potential impacts of reduced service levels.

The committee provided input to the City Manager on how to best to support the financial resources that ensure the long-term delivery of basic services to the Shoreline community. Using the committee’s input, the City Manager developed recommendations for implementing the City’s 10YFSP and gave them to the City Council for review.
