Provide direction to staff regarding the proposed budget adjustments for fiscal year 2020/21, and schedule a public hearing on June 2, 2020 to receive public comment on the Fiscal Year 2020/21 Mid-Cycle Budget.

The budget for Fiscal Year 2020/21 was adopted on June 18, 2019, as a part of the City's two-year budget cycle for fiscal years 2019/20 and 2020/21.
