City of Austin
2020 Year in Review

Like most of us, I am looking forward to the end of 2020. It’s been a year. But looking back, I am continually inspired by the unwavering resilience of this community and our City of Austin employees. Austin has and continues to endure the effects of a worldwide pandemic that has challenged our economy, stressed our healthcare system, and fed off, if not deepened, historic disparities. While this year presented us with countless challenges, it also offered many opportunities to demonstrate our City at its best. Through all the turbulence, City of Austin employees continued serving our community when they needed us most. This year’s 2020 Year in Review highlights how we’ve collectively made progress on every one of our strategic priorities while battling a global pandemic.
