Mid-Year Budget and Annual Financial Statements
The Annual Financial Statements are being finalized. I plan to present both the annual financial statements and mid-year budget at a City Council meeting in February. Overall outlook is positive.
I attended the Tri Counties Economic Forecast Conference virtually on January 27th. Accommodations and restaurants are still down 14% and 5%, respectively nationwide due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most other industries are recovering or have recovered. These two industries are also experiencing more difficulties hiring and retaining employees.
