Pandemic takes toll on Danbury revenue collections

Like everything else, the current public health emergency is taking a toll on the City of Danbury's budget.  Finance Director David St Hilaire says there's a lot of things that his department has to be mindful of as the pandemic wears on.

He says the property tax collection, for now, is doing ok, but cautioned that the impact of event like a pandemic has lagging indictors.  St Hilaire says that means the City will start seeing the problems in the coming year, and warned that it will be severe.

St Hilaire notes that Danbury is not getting anywhere close to the non-property tax revenue he hoped for.  The City is getting nothing from Parks and Rec, though Town Clerk registrations and the permit department have kept on pace.
