So, Arcata passed their annual budget. No real news there.
What caught my eye was this paragraph:
Arcata’s total budget is $28.7 million. Of that, $8.1 million is in the general fund, which covers most city departments’ operating costs and basic services. Enterprise funds, including water, wastewater, storm drainage and transit, and Community Development Block Grant and HOME Program grants represent the remainder of the budget, or $20.6 million.
Only $8 million goes to the general fund? Wouldn't you expect it to be the other way around with the $20 million going to the general fund instead?
Are all city budgets this lopsided?
