Event Description

COVID-19 and its financial impacts on local governments continue to evolve as the economy manages the ongoing impacts of the Pandemic.  Finance leaders of local governments are met with excruciatingly tough decisions on how to balance potential revenue shortfalls and the need for expenditure reduction, while still providing public services to their constituents.  This session will review how local governments can evaluate their own financial future within the context of the current COVID environment, what measures can be put into place to navigate through the financial storm, and what this means for the foreseeable future for local government budgets.  The session will cover these topics through the lens of best practices in long-term financial planning on both operations and capital.
