Public Works, the group that is responsible for running the city’s street cleaning program and fi xing potholes, has planned a reorganization of the department and “significant capital investments in equipment and a new DPW facility.” The Culture and Recreation Department wants to create a community center at Garfield Middle School that will act and serve as a multigenerational and multicultural space for Revere residents. This is a project that Mayor Arrigo has been very outspoken and passionate about. In addition to each of these departments stating an overview of its intended projects, there is a list of revenues and expenses that money will be allocated to for the overall improvement and enhancement of the city. Some examples of these are Enterprise funds, “which will give the community the fl exibility to account separately for all fi nancial activities associated with a broad range of municipal services.” Revere has two Enterprise funds: Water & Sewer and Solid Waste/Recycling. Some expenses the city will allocate money to are the general government’s Beachmont, rain or shine. The celebrant will be Fr. Dan, the Administrator from Immaculate Conception.

Fixed costs are invested into the city and schools, and also include but are not limited to, health insurance, which has a budget of $21.8 million, debt service, which has a budget of $5.1 million, and Medicare, which has a budget of $1.5 million. The Revere operating budget for the 2020 fi scal year is a responsibly balanced budget, and has allowed the city to have the highest bond rating it has ever seen. A comprehensive fi ve-year budget forecast has been updated in addition to this budget, as well as a capital improvement plan. This money will allow Revere to invest in necessary improvements, and to develop a brighter future for residents across the city. Almost all of City Council voted unanimously in approving the operating budget for the 2020 fi scal year. However, Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo was an outspoken opponent of the 5.6 percent increase in the budget. Rizzo is currently campaigning for the position of Mayor in the 2020 election, and was adamant about keeping the city’s spending under control. Mayor Arrigo disagreed with Rizzo’s comments and defended the budget by saying it will greatly benefi t Revere and the taxpayers.
