Over the past decade, the City of Escondido’s revenues have not kept pace with the growing costs associated with providing municipal services and facilities. As a result, it is becoming increasingly challenging to maintain the quality of City Services such as crime prevention, 911 response, pothole repair, street and park maintenance, graffiti eradication, homelessness issues, and other core services.
