The City of Flagstaff moved from the “moderate” stage in its economic recession plan to the “significant” stage this week.
The move came as staff presented Flagstaff City Council with updated revenue numbers for this year and new projections for the upcoming fiscal year.
The city moved into the moderate level of the recession plan in April, which was triggered when projections showed city revenues dropping by 2%. That brought with it a general freeze on hiring except for certain positions and the ceasing of travel and nonessential training for staff members.
