Each year, the City Council approves the Annual Investment Policy. In accordance with the Policy, the City Administrative Services Director is responsible for investing the unexpected cash used for funding operations in the City.

The investment of the funds of the City of San Carlos is directed to the goals of safety, liquidity and yield. The authority governing investments for municipal governments is set forth in the California Government Code, Section 53601 through 53659.

Investment Strategy
The City's investment priorities, in order, are "Safety, Liquidity and Yield," while meeting the cash flow needs of the City through prudent investment of unexpected cash.

Compliance with Policy
Historical cash flow trends are compared to current cash flow requirements on an ongoing basis to ensure the City's investment portfolio will remain sufficiently liquid to enable the City to meet all reasonably anticipated operating requirements.
