Flat Budget to Recoup 1.1 Mil COVID-19 Deficit
05/19/2020
Columbia’s upcoming budget has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, yet despite expected setbacks and losses, staffers say they’re confident the city’s finances can weather the storm. The Columbia City Council approved the first of two readings to adopt the city’s proposed 2020-2021 “no frills” fiscal budget, which totals $56,057,045 in expenditures, with approximately $32 million in the general fund. According to Columbia’s Finance Department, the COVID-19 crisis has also created a $1.1 million deficit, primarily due to impacted areas in sales, beer and hotel/motel tourism tax revenue. City Manager Tony Massey said property taxes within the city limits have remained “flat” and will not change, something city staff made a priority when adapting to the financial impacts of COVID-19. This year’s budgeted property tax is also the city’s largest annual revenue draw, bringing in approximately $11.6 million.
