Boston Budget Hearings Rolling Along

City of Boston seal

Boston’s budget hearings for Mayor Thomas Menino’s last proposed budget—a $ 2.6 billion operating budget, are rolling along.

“We’re currently in hearings, and 18 of 26 departmental hearings have already occurred,” said Emilee Ellison, spokesperson for the mayor. “There are no hearings scheduled for next week due to the [Memorial Day] holiday. Hearings are scheduled to end the second week of June. And we’re moving toward a vote as usual.”

A new updated budget will be submitted by the Menino administration in about three weeks, and the Boston City Council will vote on the last Wednesday in June on the resubmitted budget.

Part of the proposed budget includes providing 10,000 more mobile computing devices for students and more learning courses for residents at community centers, and the city also plans to launch an iPad lending program for residents. In addition, the City Hall To Go truck will transition from a pilot to a monthly set schedule that allows it to visit every neighborhood at least once a month. read more
