Ann Arbor’s city council will meet tonight and discuss its budget proposal for fiscal year 2021 and how COVID-19 will play a role in it.
Mayor Christopher Taylor says the $400 million budget will be impacted by the pandemic but they just don’t know by how much yet. He says, for Ann Arbor, it will be a revenue, not cost effect that the city will experience.
"We are going to see a diminution in fee revenue, lets say parking fees. And from the fees of park facilities. We are going to see a diminution in property tax revenue"
The mayor also says they expect to see a decrease in state revenue sharing.
