Our friends at Burlington County, New Jersey want to share a presentation they have put together that outlines how their organization has been able to become more efficient and effective, while being fiscally responsible. View or download the presentation below.
Excellence has an address
Burlington County faces the same challenge many other local governments face, how to provide their residents with the best possible services while keeping spending low and reducing the tax burden. They have been successful in doing so despite the worst economic recession in modern history.
This presentation shows some highlights from what the County has accomplished in the last 5 years. During this time, the County saw a total decrease of $6.3 Billion or 13% in property values and a $50 million decrease in revenue. A decrease such as this would be devastating to any entity. To combat this loss in revenue, the County decreased our tax levy by $24.2 million or 12.5% and decreased overall spending by over $43.7 million or 19.2%.
