“I am disappointed by Council’s action. Throughout this process, my Administration has worked diligently to achieve a compromise, and it is disheartening we were unable to reach an agreement. I remain concerned that the budget is unbalanced and contains provisions that are contrary to the City Charter.

I was elected to manage this City, and while I do not believe this budget includes all of the resources necessary to meet next year’s obligations, we will do our best to move forward and provide the quality services our citizens deserve, among them police and fire protection, trash collection and safe parks for our kids,” said Mayor Dennis P. Williams.
