The City of San Bernardino actively provides police, roads, health and social services, parks and recreation, public improvements, community development (planning, building and zoning), public utilities (water, sewage and solid waste), library, cemetery, and general administrative services. Effective July 1, 2016, the City's territory was annexed into the San Bernardino County Fire Protection District, its Valley Service Zone, and Service Zone FP-5 - thereby removing its fire protection responsibility and service. The City operates its water system through its Municipal Water Department (link below). In eastern portions of the city water service is provided by the East Valley Water District and solid waste collection by a private disposal service. The City operates with governmental funds and reports three major business-type funds: integrated waste (refuse), water, and sewer. Redevelopment activities have been removed for all years to normalize for the dissolution of redevelopment agencies effective February 1, 2012. As of August 1, 2016, the City had not completed its 2015 audit.
