What do you think are the biggest issues facing Fountain Valley right now?
The biggest issue is the decreasing revenue of city funds which have caused cuts to essential city services. During the May City Council meeting, it was stated that the city would have a $3.7-million deficit this year and a $9.3-million deficit in the 2011-12 fiscal year, which would deplete city reserves and the ability to operate the city.
