California Auditor Ranks Cities Statewide To Assess Financial Risk

Post Date:11/04/2019 6:49 AM

The California State Auditor analyzed financial information for 471 California cities to identify cities that may be at risk for fiscal distress. The State Auditor assessed the risk by performing financial comparisons and calculations. The higher the ranking number, the lower the overall financial risk.  

A set of ten indicators were used to assess each city’s ability:

  • to pay its bills in both the short and long term,
  • measuring each city’s cash position or liquidity, debt burden, financial reserves, revenue trends,
  • ability to pay for employee retirement benefits.

The full report is here.

Vista ranked 383 out of 471. Below are the rankings for the San Diego County cities:
