Coronavirus: ICMA Community Conversations
Local governments have been tapping their reserves and spending whatever has been required to meet the immediate public health demands of this COVID-19 crisis. City and county managers recognize that even as their costs have increased, their revenues are declining. What fiscal strategies can local leaders adopt to meet critical service demands while also looking ahead to develop a long-term financial plan? How can they engage with elected leaders, staff, and the broader community to plan for the changes ahead and new approaches to community services?
We have a team of experts from the private sector and local government to discuss strategies to prepare for both the short-term and long-term economic reality.
Topics to be covered include:
- Keys to transition planning
- How to prioritize major projects and financial commitments given revenue shortfalls
- Potential for financing major projects/needs in this market
- How to experiment with local government services while adapting the way work is accomplished during this COVID-19 crisis.
