The Fiscal 2021 Preliminary Budget Plan was released as-is to ensure full transparency of the City’s fiscal plan before pandemic-related revisions are made and to meet Charter-mandated milestones in the budget process. However, major revisions due to the financial implications of the COVID-19 pandemic are expected before the final Fiscal 2021 Ordinance of Estimates is presented to the Board of Estimates on May 6th.
