Baltimore’s finances will continue to suffer as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, city officials said Wednesday as they rolled out a preliminary budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1.

And officials expect some revenue streams, particularly parking, may never rebound if working from home remains widespread.
