City Financial Planning & Budgeting: Looking ahead for KC – Discussion
IMAGE

This Citywide Business Plan highlights several critical issues facing Kansas City over the next five years and begins to integrate vital but as yet disconnected efforts (performance measurement, trends analyses, structured change management, citizen surveys) into one comprehensive platform.

The plan is an important first step in breaking a pattern of successive single-year fixes, often implemented without a long-term view. The strategic priorities and issues
contained within this plan will be guiding factors for planning and resource allocation decisions in the future, and provide a structure to keep the entire organization
focused on Council priorities:

Finance and Governance
Neighborhoods and Healthy Communities
Planning, Zoning and Economic Development
Public Safety
Transportation and Infrastructure

Using the notes section (below right), please explain how you would build fiscal health for the City. Describe service level trade-offs, options and please include pros and cons summaries for each.

Building savings (increasing reserves)
Paying down debt
Cutting expenditures
Increasing incomes
