Dana Point Has spent more in 8 out of the last 9 years. These annual deficits have reduced the total spendable funds that Dana Point has in cash and investments. The proposed 2018 and 2019 budgets have attempted to reduce over spending but still project deficits each year. A plan for 2020 to 2022 has been projected with cuts in capital to only fund needed road and sewer repairs that still forecasts deficits. City Council and staff are looking of ways to increase staff efficiencies and build more revenue to meet city needs.
