The report says the city's cash funds are projected to land in the negative by the end of the month, and cash disbursements are trending lower than projected, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Miller-Williams added that anticipated state aid for the city and Board of Education will result in a positive combined cash flow through June. The fiscal year ends on June 30.
