Our Current Budget Situation
Staff's FY 2020-21 Projections

What We Have Already Done

This FY 20-21 shortfall projection could have been even larger, but City leadership recently identified a number of ways to save budget to help address the shortfall, such as:

  • Canceling Parks & Recreation programs that were impacted by shelter-in-place and stay-at-home orders.
  • Laying off 53 part-time park-and-recreation employees.
  • Identifying infrastructure improvement projects that could be postponed, such as the city pool dome replacement project and Eucalyptus Drive sidewalk project.
