By implementing a process with a longer-term perspective, it allows the City to proactively address major opportunities and challenges, to avoid short-term fixes, and to project capacity for debt issuance and pay-as-you-go capital projects. Each year, the City prepares documents to implement its financial management process as described in its policies.
