Regional Coronavirus Updates

  • Allegheny County Budget
    • Allegheny County may weather the COVID-19 economic storm better than other municipalities thanks to a reliance on real estate taxes and a solid rainy day fund, but both the administration and controller’s office acknowledge that it’s raining hard and a lot remains unknown about the storm front. The county finished 2019 in a “financially auspicious” position and was off to an “optimistic” start in 2020, according to Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner, who presents her annual fiscal review Friday. The county closed the books on 2019 with a general fund balance of $89.8 million. The county pulled in $312 million in property taxes, by far its largest revenue stream, followed by $164.8 million in state funding, mostly for health and children, youth and family services; $154.5 million in charges for services and facilities; $56 million in federal funding, mostly for corrections and social services; $51.8 million in sales and use tax; and $21.6 million in Regional Asset District funding.


Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • Bureau of Economic Analysis
    • America’s economy fared worse than initially reported in the first quarter, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. U.S. gross domestic product, the broadest measure of the American economy, shrank by an annualized rate of 5% between January and March. A preliminary report estimated the first-quarter economy shrank by 4.8%. It was the worst performance for the US economy since the final quarter of 2008, when America was in the midst of the financial crisis, and put an end to six years of uninterrupted economic growth. Much of the decline was driven by a sharp drop-off in consumer spending, especially on elective health care procedures. Economists had braced for the first-quarter contraction. But the revision shows that the economy was even worse than expected — despite humming along in January and February before shutting down in March. GDP is expected to contract even more this quarter. Thursday’s revisions were mostly dragged down by inventory numbers that were worse than thought.
