The Annual Fiscal Conditions Report, FYE 2017, for all cities in Iowa is now available on the Iowa Government Finance Initiative (IGFI) website. The individual reports include revenue and expenditure indicators that track fiscal performance of cities in Iowa. They also include legislative updates that impact city finances.

Published annually for the past four years, the reports use the latest US Census data to provide key socioeconomic indicators for each city that provide the context in which the financial data can be understood. Biswa Das, an assistant professor in community and regional planning at Iowa State University and the IGFI program leader; Christopher Seeger, ISU professor of landscape architecture; and ISU Extension and Outreach staff Bailey Hanson, GIS systems analyst, and Cindy Kendall, program coordinator, are co-authors of the report.
