Thoughts on the Houston City Council approving Mayor Turner's budget ?

Recommended Posts

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner (D) achieved his goal of securing unanimous passage of his 1st budget on May 25th, a month ahead of the typical schedule & after an unusually brief & amicable discussion inside City Council headquarters.

 

The $2.3 billion general fund budget, which pays for most basic city services with revenues from taxes & fees, spends $82 million less than the current budget, only the 2nd budget cut for Houston in decades. That is in spite of the city facing an additional $27 million in mandated employee raises & $29 million more in rising pension payments in the fiscal year that starts on July 1st.

 

Anyone have thoughts on the budget & impact it's going to have ?
