Many good things are happening in Fountain Valley in 2018. The Crossing Specific Plan was passed by City Council, we are renovating the outside of our Recreation Center and Sports Park facility, and we have undergone a City reorganization of some key City staff positions to better positioned ourselves to meet the challenges of today and the future.

Work is underway to present a budget plan to City Council for the 2018-19 fiscal year that is balanced and ensures we are able to keep essential City services intact. The additional revenues provided by Measure HH – Essential City Services are providing the funds needed to look after our ongoing Police, Fire, Recreation and other key services as well as make sure we are handling our ongoing payments for pensions and bond payments. One key measure of this success is seeing all of the new Police Officers we are now able to hire as we work hard to fill the 10 vacancies we have. We still have another 5 or so to go but great progress has been made.

Summer is upon us. We anticipate another great Summerfest event in June as well as another residential pavement project to maintain our great city as expected by our community. Fountain Valley is a good place to live, work and play!
