This issue of the City of Sunnyvale’s Quarterly Report is a little different that past ones. In this issue, the city’s budget is laid out in very simple terms, explaining where revenue comes from and what the various services are that the city provides to you. It also gets into some detail about some of the more complex aspects of the budget and city planning – the multiple ways that new developments impact revenue, the different ways Prop. 13 affects property taxes, the top sales tax producers in Sunnyvale, how your taxes get divided up. It’s a good read, and I encourage you to check it out.
