City Manager to Submit Recommended Budget Tomorrow

City Manager Michael Ortega will submit his Recommended FY 16/17 Budget to the Mayor and Tucson City Council at tomorrow's Study Session. The budget trims away at a projected $25.6 million deficit.

During a meeting earlier this month, the City Council generally accepted the amount of the cuts, but it directed Ortega to change a few of the items he suggested earlier in the process.

Final adoption of the budget is set for June 7, and there will be public hearings before that (May 3 and June 7).
