COVID-19 has affected just about every aspect of our lives since mid-March. At the City of College Station, we expect that impact to continue well into our next fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1.
The city’s proposed Fiscal Year 2020-21 budget —presented to the city council Thursday night — takes a strategic approach to address our community’s short-term, mid-term, and long-term needs in these uncertain times. The council takes a more in-depth look at the numbers beginning with Monday’s first budget workshop, followed by additional sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The budget workshops can be accessed through Zoom. We’ll post the presentations from each day here:
- FY 2020-21 Proposed City Budget
- Monday Budget Workshop Presentation (July 27)
- Tuesday Budget Workshop Presentation (July 28)
- Wednesday Budget Workshop Presentation (July 29)
A public hearing on the budget and tax rate will be Aug. 13. The council will consider adopting the budget and tax rate on Aug. 27. Continue reading “Proposed city budget reflects COVID-19 challenges”
