The proposed 2020 city budget tells us what they think about our chances for economic growth next year.
The adopted 2019 city budget included $2,140,000 for commercial building permits. This year they are projecting the collection of $2,000,000. In other words they expect commercial construction to slow down.
On the residential building front they are lowering their expectations from $2,250,000 last year to $2,125,622 this year.
They anticipate increasing spending by 6% anyway.
We deserve better
