LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The city of Louisville is a step closer to having a budget for next fiscal year. The Metro Council's budget committee approved Mayor Greg Fischer's proposed plan Wednesday night.
The $500 million spending outline includes no new taxes and no layoffs or furloughs for city employees -- but does call for less overtime.
Fischer's proposed budget allocates funding for more police on the streets, cleaning up abandoned homes and a new library in southwest Jefferson County.
The budget goes to the full Metro Council for approval tonight and then on to the Mayor for his signature.
