EUGENE, Ore. — The Eugene City Council approved the budget for fiscal year 2021 Monday evening.
The budget, which has been adjusted for potential revenue shortfalls because of the pandemic, did not propose any furloughs or layoffs.
City officials were looking to cut $7.5 million because of the pandemic. Overall the city government is expected to lose $30 million in revenue from the lack of taxes being collected with people out of work.
The budget allocates over $200,000 to help the city respond to COVID-19. That includes the continuation of some homeless shelters as well as portable restrooms.
