The 2021 Recommended Budget is $79.8 million and represents a 31.3% decrease from the 2020 Budget. The primary factor in this budget decrease comes from an anticipated 2020 debt issuance in water reclamation for $23.8 million and several large capital projects planned in 2020. When considering these 2020 one-off budget items, the 2021 Recommended Budget is an 5.4% decrease from the adjusted 2020 Budget. The General Fund Budget, the City’s largest fund, remains flat from 2020.
