Council Set to Vote on S.A. Budget

By Pilar Arias

Tough decisions to the very end.

That’s how some San Antonio city council members felt about the final “B” session meeting ahead of Thursday’s budget adoption vote.

During the time 13 proposed amendments were supposed to be discussed, there were a lot of questions and ideas.

“This is something we also need to take up during Governance (Committee) is establishing a deadline for budget amendments before adoption of a budget,” Mayor Ron Nirenberg said during the meeting.

However, most involved in the process said they are proud of the work put into the fiscal year 2018 budget, which City Manager Sheryl Sculley called balanced as proposed.

“It’s been a very, very difficult and long road,” District 1 Councilman Roberto Trevino said. “We’re happy to be here and see that there’s going to be some serious impact, not only for our district, but the entire city as a whole.”
