In 2018, the City match from the General Fund will be approximately $75,000. <br /> Staff anticipates the 2019 match (if approved) will similarly continue to be around <br /> $75,000; this is included in the City's and the PDA's budgets. In addition to the direct <br /> City contribution, the City provides a significant amount in indirect funding which <br /> includes staff time to administer the PDA assessments and contract, assistance and <br /> support for events and business initiatives, as well as the cost to maintain downtown <br /> planters, cleaning sidewalks, and garbage pickup. <br />
