The city of Coral Springs is run as a municipal corporation, with a bi-annual business plan that implements the 3-4 strategic initiatives passed by the City Commission. So the budget becomes a tool to implement the business plan instead of the tail wagging the dog. This is the result of the effort of the administration, the elected Commission, and volunteer advisory committees over a span of at least 12 years to earn selection by the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for Excellence that Sophia Cagan cited.

Where people choose to live, work and raise a family is in effect a vote in favor of the basket of public goods and services their community provides. In this light, living here is a great choice.
