At the recent State of the City hosted by the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, Santa Monica Mayor Ted Winterer unveiled the City of Santa Monica’s Annual Report for fiscal year 2015-2016. The video complements the Annual Report website at annualreport.smgov.net.

“The interactive format of the annual report offers a clear snapshot of all we’ve accomplished in the last year,” said Mayor Ted Winterer. “I encourage everyone to explore the site to see the investments we’ve made, areas of success, and also where we need to improve.
