DeSoto City budget looks good in 2021

(DeSoto) The City of DeSoto was able to keep their heads above water in 2020 and are looking forward to things improving even more in 2021. DeSoto City Manager Todd Melkus says they were able to get their budget passed without losing any key components.

Like many other municipalities, DeSoto did have a few city employees miss time due to quarantine as a result of Covid-19.

Melkus says their schedule for improvement projects are on schedule for this year with no delays, with most of those projects coming up in the springtime. Melkus is also hopeful some of the public events that were canceled last year can take place this year.
