Galt wants non-residents to come here and spend money.

That was the sentiment following a staff report at last Tuesday's City Council meeting.

    Sounds good, BUT how was this question addressed & answered:

    Galt receives no county general fund money from either Sacramento or San Joaquin counties to support our city funded parks & rec programs. Yes, we are the only City in the State allowed by State Law to operate a Market, BUT even the market does not pay for our entire Parks & Rec budget, which is subsidized by the General Fund. Yes Sacramento County does provide limited funding for their South County ‘Regional Park’, McFarland Ranch, operated by our local Historical Society, which is located IN the County, not the City. Galt also helps fund this park.
    Question: How much of my tax dollars are used to support/subsidize both Sacramento & San Joaquin County residents who use our Parks & Rec programs & facilities and do not pay into Galt’s General Fund?

    Your article simply does not answer this very basic city budgeting question. I certainly HOPE that this question was asked, discussed and ANSWERED at the council meeting before council members voted on it!!

    What did the consultant have to say about this?

    BTW, how much did “we” (only the citizen’s of Galt, not County residents) pay for this report?
