Mayor Haslam Presents the Budget
May 1, 2009 - Mayor Bill Haslam said today that his administration and City Council knew that good financial times eventually have to come to an end – and they carefully managed the city’s money to be ready for that day.
As a result, despite the worst economic crisis in decades, Haslam said the city’s 2009-2010 budget will continue city services at current levels, maintain ongoing redevelopment efforts, and make significant investments in recreation facilities and infrastructure improvements among other things.
The Mayor also said the city will do those things without having to raise taxes or dip into the city’s fund balance for operating money.
Haslam made his remarks to several hundred guests gathered at Mary Costa Plaza for the Mayor’s Budget Luncheon, his sixth budget event since first being elected in 2003.
