The proposed budget for fiscal years 2021-22 and 2022-23 reflects the strength of the local economy emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic with a positive economic outlook given the extent of fiscal stimulus funding and level of pent-up consumer demand. The budgets for the two fiscal years are balanced with significant community investments made possible by projected General Fund revenues.
