Mayor Bob Buckhorn issued the following statement on vote on the budget
"I want to thank those Councilmember's who worked to find a budget solution that allows us to move forward,” said Mayor Buckhorn. “This year, like the previous six have presented a challenging set of financial circumstances and a recognition of how long and deep the effects of this recession have been. We will continue to look for opportunities to cut costs and reduce expenditures as we have done every year for the last 6 years.
“This budget preserves our public safety priorities while enhancing our parks and recreation programs to keep our children and seniors active and safe, while also helping to stabilize our path forward financially."
