Ann Arbor’s city council approved a $466 million city budget Monday night.
It’s a pre-COVID-19 budget council plans to amend as they get a better idea on how the pandemic will impact the city’s finances. Mayor Christopher Taylor says council did reduce the budget by over $1 million by eliminating the city’s annual deer cull and putting some capital projects on hold.
Mayor Christopher Taylor: A Hollywood Blvd. road construction, Ann Arbor Saline project, we eliminated a transfer this year to a capital sinking fund.
The city is working on putting together a financial recovery plan to address the economic impact caused by COVID-19.
