What is the current state of Modesto’s budget?

Unfortunately, today as a small town we are experiencing some big city problems like homelessness, blight, and criminal activity. We don’t receive enough funds from the State to tackle these big city problems.

In fact, the State still funds us like a rural community – so we don’t get the same state funding as other cities our size.
