6/5/20 - COVID-19 Response: Cutback Budgeting for Local Governments

When local governments suddenly face recessions there are pressures to react swiftly. Oftentimes, the reactions are based on cutback budgeting habits instead of careful management of the current or expected budget deficit. This presentation will suggest three points to guide cutback budgeting based on research on how local governments managed previous recessions. The focus is on leadership and management of cutback budgeting decisions, framing cutback discussions, and thinking about immediate and long-term strategies.
