Council Gets Mayor’s Budget Plan on Capital Improvements

ALBUQUERQUE MAYOR TIM KELLER HAS SUBMITTED HIS BUDGET PROPOSAL TO THE ALBUQUERQUE CITY COUNCIL … AND COUNCILORS GOT THEIR FIRST LOOK AT THE PLAN LAST NIGHT AT THE COMMITTEE OF A WHOLE MEETING. THE PLAN CONTAINS FUNDING TO IMPROVE ALBUQUERQUE’S STREETS, PUBLIC SAFETY, COMMUNITY FACILITIES AND DRAINAGE ISSUES. THE TOTAL COST COMES TO 127 MILLION DOLLARS FOR THESE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS.

FIVE-AND-A-HALF MILLION DOLLARS WOULD GO TO FIRST RESPONDERS, LIKE POLICE … 37 MILLION WOULD BE USED TO FIX THE CITY’S STREETS … AND 5-POINT-6 MILLION WOULD GO TO THE CITY’S DRAINAGE ISSUES.

THE PLAN HAS TO BE APPROVED BY BOTH KELLER AND THE CITY COUNCIL.
