It is the commitment of the Office of Management and Budget to ensure that each and every taxpayer dollar is allocated in the most efficient manner. Efficiency involves more than simply spending less. It also means providing the citizens of Rochester with the most desired outcomes.
Fortunately, through sound business practices, the City has remained financially stable and continues to pursue ways to grow our tax base. Attracting new residents and businesses to the City of Rochester who will prosper, benefits the entire Rochester community, and speaks directly to our key priorities: more jobs, safer neighborhoods and better schools.
