Mid-Year Budget Review Paints Optimistic Picture for Hesperia

According to the Victorville Daily Press, February 23, 2017, Hesperia continues to head in the right financial direction, with an increase in development projects and revenue leading the way, according to officials. Hesperia Assistant City Manager Brian Johnson told the City Council that the amended fiscal year 2016-17 mid-year budget for Hesperia was “probably the most optimistic” the city has ever seen. Before receiving and filing the budget report, the Council discovered Hesperia had collected $24.8 million in revenue, which is 8.1 percent, or $2 million, more than the same time period last year. The city had 109 single-family residential building permits and 56,526 square feet of commercial development through Dec. 31, with 50 permits and 18,800 square feet of commercial development during the same period the year before.
