2018 Toledo Budget Cuts Spending by $3M

posted by News Radio 1370 WSPD & 92.9-FM - 

(Toledo, OH) Toledo city leaders are cutting spending in this year's budget. 

A budget task force from the mayor's office and city council managed to slice $3 million  from last year's spending plan. That includes cutting a transfer from the capital improvement budget by $9 million, ensuring more roads get paved and long-term projects get completed. 

Part of that was accomplished by devoting more federal block grant dollars to neighborhood projects-- one of the major goals of the task force. 

The budget does rely on increased revenue from sources like casino proceeds and inspection fee hikes. 

The spending plan saves over a million dollars by delaying the next firefighter class until next year. City council will vote on the revised budget next week.
