SAN ANTONIO – Mayor Ron Nirenberg and City Council will meet on Thursday morning to discuss a proposed $2.9 billion budget.
The meeting is slated to begin at 9 a.m. via videoconference, but delays are possible. If there is not a livestream available, check back at a later time.
The proposed budget is $7.7 million less than what council passed for the FY 2020 but includes numerous cuts.
City Manager Erik Walsh said no city employees will lose their jobs, and despite a national reckoning over racial injustice and police brutality, it will not reflect any effort to “defund” the police as some activists have called for.
Walsh said he is proposing a process that could lead to permanent changes.
Community services like libraries, youth programs and senior services should not see major changes with the proposed budget.
