Council Considering Budget

  Today is the first day of the Louisville Metro Council’s public access to the budget hearing’s, and the public has shown their disgust and frustration with the budget proposal. The proposal issued by the mayor, Jerry Abramson, was based in part on a list of financial priorities provided to the mayor’s office by the Metro Council. Today, many citizens have shown up to the Council meeting to voice their frustrations and plead for more funding, or to keep funding.

  The budget has ensured that, if it continues as posted, over one hundred jobs will be affected. Both Caucus’ have issued statements voicing their concern for the cuts, they both have also stated an understanding of the need for them. The Council now has the task of approving or disapproving of the budget by the first of next month.
