(Toledo, OH) Toledo City Council will soon begin debate on next year's budget.
Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson unveiled the nearly $260 million spending plan Wednesday, saying it provides vital city services while improving its financial standing. The budget includes money for residential street repaving and the hiring of new police officers and firefighters.
The mayor must propose a balanced budget every November, according to the city charter.
The budget must be passed by the end of March, allowing Mayor-elect Wade Kapszukiewicz to make any changes.
