Conservative and Balanced Budget

On June 24, 2019, the Hughson City Council unanimously approved the Preliminary Budget for the upcoming 2019-2020 fiscal year.

The budget serves as the City’s work plan, translated into expenditures and supported by revenues. The City of Hughson provides a full range of municipal services including public safety, public works, water, wastewater, storm drainage, parks, community activities and general administrative support. The budget reflects a trend of slowing growth in the economy and a conservative approach reducing spending to maintain a balanced budget.

Portable Observation Device

To proactively address its goal ensuring the safety and security of the community, the Hughson City Council has allocated funding for the placement of public safety cameras throughout the City. The cameras are intended to deter criminal activity and assist law enforcement efforts. Phase I of the effort will include six (6) Portable Observation Devices—a self-contained camera system—to be placed along major corridors of the City. It is anticipated that the City will implement a second phase of security devices in the future.
