The city of Jyväskylä's financial statement 2014: The economy has taken a turn for the better

The City of Jyväskylä's annual budget was significantly better than the budgetary estimations indicated even though there still was a deficit of EUR 13.3 million. Investments were cut as planned and the loan stock increased by 9.1 million.

“The city is growing, which means that new jobs are being created and for students we are still an attractive city”, Koivisto says.

  • The report in the municipal division produced a lot of valuable background material, but the discussion about the division showed that other municipalities are not willing to merge. In January 2015, Jyväskylä City Board decided to reject the proposition.

“In the future, the city has no need to actively continue the discussion about municipal division. Instead, now is the time to concentrate on developing our own operations”, mayor Timo Koivisto states.

  • The national social welfare and health-care reform was also a significant factor in the city's operations and decision-making last year. Although the national scheme was temporarily suspended earlier this year, the work done for it in Jyväskylä will not go to waste.

“Central Finland's SOTE 2020 project progresses and the preparations initiated on the basis of the national reform showed encouraging signs of the functionality of provincial cooperation”, Koivisto says.
