Dear Lodi Resident,

The City of Lodi has worked hard in recent years to maintain critical services, such as police, fire, emergency response, street maintenance and repaving, and parks and recreation facilities. At the same time, the demand for services continues to increase.
The Great Recession forced the City to eliminate personnel and funding from every department, impacting city services. We have still not recovered. While Lodi’s population has increased 5 percent since 2007, we have fewer police officers and firefighters to respond to emergencies than we did a decade ago, and community resources like Lodi Lake Park have a backlog of critical maintenance issues.
Our goal is to maintain progress in Lodi and keep pace with the service demands of a growing city, while also being fiscally responsible. The City is considering asking Lodi voters to support a half-cent sales tax, which would establish a new and stable locally controlled funding source to address the City’s most critical needs. All funds generated by a potential ballot measure would stay in Lodi to maintain local services and improve facilities.
We want to know what YOU think. Please follow this link to a survey that will be available through June 15, 2018.
You can also write me directly via email at citymanager@lodi.gov.
Thank you for your time. Your opinion is important.


Steve Schwabauer
Lodi City Manager
