Budgeting Wisely in a Time of Restraint

Evening Forum

In 2019, Oakland underwent its typical two-year budgetary process to determine the financial resources needed to operate and achieve the city's goals through 2021. Since that budget was adopted, however, the COVID-19 pandemic has rocked municipalities' fiscal forecasts around the country, and comparable impacts are being felt here at home. Midway through the budget cycle, come learn about the ramifications for Oakland and how the pandemic will change the city's attempts to balance its budgets in the coming years. Co-presented by Make Oakland Better Now! and the League of Women Voters Oakland.
