As you may know, the City recently adopted its annual budget. I’m happy to report we maintain a balanced budget that protects the number of sworn police officers in Wheatland providing public safety services and meets our fiscally prudent target of 25% in reserves. Wheatland is a city committed to strong fiscal stewardship, transparency and accountability over taxpayer dollars. Working together, the City Council and City staff ensure our budget and financial policies reflect spending consistent with the community’s priorities.
Over the next few months our staff will be reaching out to community members to Join the Conversation and provide feedback on these community priorities. We want to hear from you, so when you have a chance, take advantage of an opportunity. At minimum, click the link below to go to Join the Conversation on this website and complete the brief survey.
There are so many exciting things happening in Wheatland! On July 9, the City Council accepted a $1 million gift from long-time resident David Creps. The purpose of Mr. Creps gift is to fund future operations of a community pool without any impact to our General Fund. Since we don’t have a pool, Mr. Creps has given us 7 years to build one!
August 8 is National Night Out and a great opportunity to meet neighbors and thank First Responders in Wheatland for their service.
Pumpkin Farm season is fast approaching! Working together with the Bishops, a combination of paving and street sweeping will make a huge improvement with the dust and gravel problems from prior years. The funding for these improvements comes from Bishop Farm! We know improving our streets is a priority and this partnership is helping.
We would love to see you at a City Council meeting. The Council’s regular meeting times are the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Center. Check this website for any change in the regular meeting schedule.
Enjoy the summer!
