Cornell said the city has an operating budget around $100 million dollars. It has a reserve fund of $30 million dollars, which is far better than most California cities.
He said the city relies on sales tax, transit occupancy tax (TOT) and property taxes. He said that a home with the median home value of $452,700 pays $377 in property taxes.

Of that $377, $146 goes to the Paso Robles School District, $100 to the county, and $70 to the City of Paso Robles. $61 goes to other entities.

City Treasure Mike Compton has been with the city for 20 years. He has 40 years experience as an elected city treasurer.

Mayor Steve Martin says the city’s financial health is good.
