Importantly, Folsom doesn’t have a spending problem we have a revenue problem. A combination of factors, including “the Amazon Effect.” inflation are diverting more of Folsom’s revenues to the state, county or other cities, and other rising costs have brought us to a point where expenses are getting higher than revenues. The city has been taking steps for years to cut costs, and now we have to make some tough decisions – we can raise revenue, or cut more services. As citizens who enjoy the quality of life Folsom offers, high levels of public safety, and the property values that adequate city services create, cutting services or levels of service is not an option.
