Manteca & Tracy budgets


Manteca and Tracy are showing what  other cities have been unable to do, neither the County nor even the State can do nowadays: deliver a balanced budget… and on time.

The Manteca City Council managed to approve a $103-million 2010-2011 budget borrowing little less than $4 millions from its reserve fund. The City had shed 25 percent of its workforce during the last year but the time for massive layoffs and service-cutting is over, Manteca officials said, and they had to eliminate but one job position for this fiscal year.

Tracy, on the other hand, has survived the current economic crisis without losing a single policeman or firefighter. City officials credit a steady and substantial income from development before the housing market collapsed and the reorganization of city business to eliminate duplicity and waste. Most layoffs —17 percent of staff, according to city officials— went without the drama of cities like Stockton.
