Scottsdale’s economy outperformed projections during the summer months but city officials caution the trend may not continue now that supplemental federal unemployment benefits have expired.
City Council approved a $1.54-billion budget in June calling for $30 million to $40 million in cuts.
That included a $18.4-million cut in General Fund spending, from $296.1 to $277.7 million, because of concerns about the pandemic’s impact on tourism, restaurants, retail and other important economic drivers.
