Report Highlights Rockville’s Fiscal Year 2019 Accomplishments
in Review Looks at How the City Government is Serving the Community
Maryland, Sept. 4 — Learn about the City of Rockville’s accomplishments over
the past fiscal year in City Manager Rob DiSpirito’s Fiscal Year 2019 annual
report to the Mayor and Council and the Rockville community.
pleased to report in these pages our progress on some of the community’s
highest priorities, including pedestrian safety, community policing, government
efficiency and effectiveness, economic development that attracts and retrains
quality businesses and employers, and investments in parks and recreational
services that improve your quality of life,” DiSpirito wrote in his letter
introducing the report.
FY 2019 accomplishments include:
• Ninety-four percent of residents
responding to the city’s 10th biennial survey said their quality of life in
Rockville was excellent (39 percent) or good (55 percent).
• A perfect score, for the second
consecutive year, on the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index
scorecard for Rockville’s commitment to the health, welfare, safety and
equality of its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community.
• Reaffirmation by ratings agencies of the
city’s triple-A credit rating, which saves tax dollars by allowing Rockville to
borrow at the lowest possible interest rates and is an indication of the city’s
sound financial health and financial management practices.
• $70,000 in total value of food, cash,
toys and gift cards collected through donations by more than 190 individuals,
businesses and community organizations through the city’s annual Holiday Drive.
