Many elected officials state that because of the fiscal problems that are currently being faced by state and local governments there will be layoffs of thousands of employees and cuts made to key programs such as education, health care, road construction, and other essential government services.

Funding cuts at every level especially at the federal and state levels will continue to affect local communities and services they provide for citizens. Municipalities are charged with the task of finding creative solutions to maintain a certain level of service without a huge increase in cost to its residents, or even more important, without having to reduce or eliminate government services.
In order to determine what government services are important to Fairborn citizens, the research was designed to answer the following question: What local government services do residents of the City of Fairborn feel are the most important for the city to provide and maintain?
The research is intended to be used as a guide for city officials to effectively and efficiently make informed choices about services citizens find most important and the type of solutions that will fit the needs of their residents.
The research team attempted to determine what the knowledge and attitudes the citizens have towards city government services.
This was done by questioning a sample population representative of the City of Fairborn. Issues of concern conveyed by residents were studied utilizing a combination of quantitative and qualitative research techniques.
