FROMAMY: The new year always seems to bring a fresh start. We are kicking o 2021 with some exciting news for our readers and advertisers. Our Round Rock-Pugerville- Hutto edition will now become two editions: Round Rock and Pugerville-Hutto. You will see changes in our editorial content evolve over the next few months as we grow our team so we can deliver even more useful, hyperlocal news. Each edition of these two papers will soon have more stories catered to the area. You may wonder why we are making the change. Community Impact Newspaper was founded with a mission to build communities of informed citizens and thriving businesses. The Round Rock-Pugerville-Hutto area has grown and therefore, so has our circulation. Our advertising rates are based on circulation, and we were pricing out some of the small businesses and nonprots we aim to serve. Splitting this edition into two markets lowers the entry cost to advertise and enables us to deliver more customized content to the residents of these communities. Small businesses are the heart of our communities, and they need our support now more than ever. We hope you will join us in celebrating changes that benet us all—businesses, nonprots, readers and journalists looking for employment. We are humbled and proud to be hiring when so many media organizations are not able to. Amy Leonard Bryant, GENERALMANAGER

Although Dr. Tucker specializes in full-mouth rehabilitation, implant dentistry and cosmetic

City budgets reect uncertain nancial futures spurred by COVID19

BY KELSEY THOMPSON

TRACKING Y O U R T A X E S Alongside the adoption of Round Rock, Pugerville and Hutto’s scal year 202021 budgets, each city adopted a corresponding property tax rate. Here is a breakdown of each city’s tax rate and the services funded by the revenue.

Nearly 10 months since the coronavirus pandemic led to unprec- edented shutdowns and unemploy- ment levels in March, the cities of Round Rock, Pugerville and Hutto began 2021 with adjustments to their scal year 2020-21 budgets, reective of the nancial impacts of COVID-19. Round Rock City Council adopted a $420.2 million budget Sept. 10 for FY 2020-21, a $25 million decrease from the FY 2019-20. Round Rock’s chief nancial ocer, Susan Morgan, attributed the cuts to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “We are focusing on recovering from a position of strength,” Morgan said. “We’ve made targeted reduc- tions across departments.” The city of Round Rock trimmed $5 million from the FY 2020-21 gen- eral fund to combat nancial strains posed by the pandemic. The initial budget for the FY 2020-21 general fund was listed as close to $124.7 million; following the reductions, the now-approved general fund sits at $119.6 million. Reductions across city depart- ments included hiring delays, restric- tions on overtime, and limitations on traveling and training expenses, per city documents. Pugerville City Council adopted a $216.3 million budget Aug. 25 for FY 2020-21, a 13.36% increase over the city’s $190.8 million budget from the previous scal year. Sales taxes were higher year over year within Pugerville throughout

the pandemic, attributed by city sta to ongoing construction work on the upcoming Amazon facility as well as residents shopping more locally. However, when looking toward 2021, city sta opted to budget the city’s sales tax projections more con- servatively, given the unprecedented nature of the pandemic and uncer- tainty regarding long-term nancial implications caused by it. “In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the city of

Pugerville limited new programs to those that would assist multiple departments or that contributed towards the city’s continued focus on transportation initiatives,” city spokesperson Maggie Holman said in a statement. The city will continually track monthly revenue and expenditures reports during FY 2020-21 and make budgetary amendments as necessary, Holman said. Hutto City Council adopted a $56.1

million budget Sept. 17 for FY 2020- 21. Its adopted FY 2020-21 budget marks a decrease from the city’s FY 2019-20 budget of $90.5 million. City spokesperson Stacy Schmitt said council did not have to remove specic line items or place limita- tions on the city’s budget due to the pandemic. However, Schmitt said the Hutto’s Finance Department pro- vided conservative estimates on the city’s sales tax revenues, which are projected to grow 10% from last year.
