What does the City do with idle cash?
When managing idle cash the City Treasurer has three guiding principles:

1. Safety
2. Liquidity
3. Return on investment

Safety has the highest priority and return on investment the lowest. Following those principles, the treasurer invests about half of the City’s idle cash in a State investment pool while the balance of the idle cash is invested at several institutions in very secure investments.
