City budget decision time

Tuesday, September 10, 2019 by Elizabeth Pagano

This week, City Council will pass a budget that will top $4 billion. In order to do so, Council members have scheduled three meetings. They could pass the budget today, at the first of those scheduled meetings. If that doesn’t happen, they have the option of continuing their discussion on Wednesday and Thursday. Of course, the Austin Monitor will keep its readers posted. Those wanting to study up in advance can read up on Council members’ (many) proposed amendments, a number of which have been posted on the City Council Message Board in advance. In addition, this 15-page memo and our previous coverage are both good refreshers on where things currently stand.
