City Leadership Proposes Budget Reductions

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Redmond has identified approximately 6.3 million dollars in proposed budget reductions. These include a combination of temporarily decreasing the 2020 investment in the Capital Improvement Program, reducing ongoing service and supplies, eliminating nine staff positions which are currently vacant, and freezing all non-critical expenditures. These proposed reductions will balance the expected deficit in the current budget, but if conditions remain as they are currently, additional reductions will be needed in the 2021-2022 budget. City Council will review the detailed program cuts and policy adjustment at the Finance, Administration and Communications Committee of the Whole meeting on May 26, and vote on the final budget adjustment in June.
