The Scottsdale City Council is set to consider the city’s tentative budget for the upcoming fiscal year May 19, and members are likely looking at cuts of at least $25 million due to lost revenue because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

However, some council members are warning that number could be much higher.

The Show spoke with Wayne Schutsky, managing editor of the Scottsdale Progress, about how Scottsdale's economic situation compares to cities across the nation.
