In case you missed it, Cleveland City Council convened legislative hearings on Tuesday, February 17, to review Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s $541.7 million proposal for the city’s operating budget for 2015.
During the two weeks of deliberations, council members will review the 471-page spending plan and, prior to voting for approval, will hear testimonies from city officials representing all municipal divisions and departments.
Council, which has the authority to amend the Mayor’s proposal, must approve a balanced budget by April 1, at which time the city’s Annual Appropriation Ordinance goes into effect.
Mayor Jackson opened the legislative hearings with a brief presentation and answered questions from City Council members. If you missed the Mayor’s appearance, you can re-watch it by clicking on the link below and selecting the “2015 Budget Hearings” tab:
