Birmingham city council preparing for budget vote

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM - AL -

    The Birmingham City Council is reviewing Mayor William Bell's new budget proposal.

    Council members got their copies of the plan over the weekend.  The Mayor says the new budget is similar to his very first budget proposal for this fiscal year.

    Last Thursday, Bell did say he made some modifications to his original budget.  It includes cuts to non profits and the possibility of raises for city workers.

    Some councilors say budget negotiations between the Mayor and the council haven't been easy.

     The council may vote on the budget Tuesday, July 31st.  The budget had been due one month ago.
