Since 2010, and for seven consecutive years, the City has balanced its budget without using reserves or raising taxes. The City’s Five Year Capital Improvement Program and 2017/18 Capital Improvement Project Budget will go before Council this week on Wednesday, June 21.

June 22, 2017 FEATURED THIS WEEK Thank you to our Police Department for being tough on crime! Last Friday, officers responded to 100 North Broadway after a report of vandalism. When they arrived, they located a gang member with more than a dozen spray paint cans in his backpack and fresh paint on his hands. Officers later determined the suspect also tagged the Bank of America on 2nd Ave. The suspect was booked on three counts of felony vandalism due to the gang enhancement. Great job Escondido PD! The Escondido Girls Softball Canopy has been completed. This project highlights great teamwork within our Escondido community to provide a needed addition to the girls’ softball fields. A huge thank you to everyone who helped with this project. SPECIAL EVENTS Movies in the Park – Grape Day Park – 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday June 24 Bring your family to the 10th season of Movies in the Park and watch a great movie on an inflatable 40’ screen.. . .
