The downturn in the real estate and auto industries are to blame for decreased Carson City sales tax revenues, and a general fund, which was $3.3 million less than the final budget, an auditing firm reports.
The city's annual financial report will be presented Thursday when the board of supervisors meet.
"Planned expenditures were reduced during the fiscal year in response to this reduction in revenue," the report states. "Continued reductions in sales taxes are anticipated and continued reduction in expenditures are being evaluated."
Staff and representatives from Kafoury, Armstrong and Co. also will offer recommendations for improvement during the presentation.
In other business Thursday, the board can:
• Approve Timothy Herbst as an additional liquor manager for Terribles at 4640 S. Carson St.
• Adopt changes to the liquor license ordinance.
• Adopt amendments to the building inspection ordinance codes.
• Renew a temporary banner ordinance to give more advertising options to businesses during difficult economic conditions.
• Amend the Carson River Master Plan to include the Carson River watershed.
• Appoint three people to the Parks and Recreation Commission for four-year terms.
