In total, the operating budget supports 1,278 full-time equivalent positions.

The budget is flat due to a projected 3.3% decrease in sales taxes from the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Total revenue in Peoria is forecast to decrease 2.4% this fiscal year and 3.6% fiscal year 2021. However, the sales tax decrease is expected to be offset by an increase in the income tax allocation and other revenues in the general fund.
