Albuquerque city councilors to vote on budget bill

city council

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Monday night, Albuquerque city councilors continue to work on next year’s budget.

Last week, a group of city councilors proposed amending the mayor’s budget plan to put $10 million more into public safety.

The councilors want 25 more police service aides and new police vehicles, a new fire rescue vehicle and salary increases for firefighters, and another prosecutor.

The mayor raised concerns about where the funding would come from, so his office made tweaks and sent councilors a substitute bill.

The budget would apply to fiscal year 2018, which starts July 1.
