This report is a user’’s guide to the Camden City budget. It puts the “easy to understand” realities of Camden’s ongoing " scal crisis into a larger geographic and historical context. It provides a common set of numbers, clears away many distracting details and focuses instead on a few key questions:

  • Where does the money go?
  • •Where does the money come from?
  • •What drives the persistent deficit?
  • •What would it take for Camden to reduce its dependence on special State aid?
  • •Is the City (government, employers, and citizens) getting a fair deal from payments in lieu of taxes?
