How Does the SF Budget Compare with Other Cities?

March 17, 2009

A new report from the Controller provides comparative information on how much the City and County of SF spends per capita on key services relative to other communities. While making clear that it is not advocating cuts to particular services, it provides an objective set of data points to make appropriate policy decisions. The report also provides information on how certain revenue sources have changed over time. For anyone interested in local budgeting, this is a must read.
