Cincinnati's mayor sends budget to city council

Cincinnati's Mayor is sending the City Manager's recommended budget to Council for its consideration.  

Mark Mallory praised the administration's budget Tuesday and Milton Dohoney.

The mayor did make about a $1 million worth of changes to the proposed spending plan.  

Mallory wants to restore $610,770 of funding for human services programs, some or all of $300,000 for Media Bridges, $50,000 for arts grants and $56,000 for a domestic violence advocate in the city's law department.

Council's Budget and Finance Committee is scheduled to hold public hearings on the budget December 6th and 10th.
