CASA GRANDE — The exact impact of the COVID-19 stay-at-home order on city revenues hasn’t been determined yet but the city is planning for a decrease in revenues for its 2021 fiscal year, which begins July 1.

Interim Finance Director Rob Sweeney explained to Casa Grande City Council members during a budget planning meeting Wednesday that the city has received preliminary sales tax revenue figures for the month of March.

The figures show a decrease in revenues for the two weeks the stay-at-home order was in place during the month, he said. However, revenue for the whole month was more than last year at the same time.
