The City of Dallas uses a triple bottom line lens to examine how the organization does business. This means that the City is also looking beyond financial performance to examine our environmental and social responsibility.
We will continue to strengthen the City’s financial condition through strategic planning, effective and efficient management and by expanding our economic tax base through aggressive and creative economic development. The FY 2013-14 City of Dallas adopted budget allows the City to continue to operate within its resources; reflects the City’s established priorities; and supports the City’s ability to recover and thrive. All key service levels are maintained and/or restored with some service enhancements and some increased obligations.
The FY 2013-14 adopted budget is balanced and reflects a fiscally responsible approach to address the challenges and leverage the opportunities to improve the quality of life for Dallas citizens.
