Abstract

The County of Riverside’s fiscal conditions were evaluated. The County faces serious fiscal issues stemming from discretionary spending that exceeds discretionary revenue. The Great Recession of 2008 precipitated the County’s economic downturn. However, Federal and State budget cuts coupled with legislative acts in Sacramento hastened the process. It is recommended the County implement cost-control measures, seek State funding, and restructure union contracts in pursuit of fiscal solvency.
