Hartford Mayor Unveils Budget

Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra today unveiled his budget proposal for the next fiscal year.  A summary is available from the city.

Segarra says the property tax rate will remain unchanged.

He says there might be a slight increase in the tax bill for some home owners, because of the phase-in of the revaluation of homes and businesses.

The budget proposal totals $547-million.  That is an increase of less than one percent from last year.

Some city positions are going unfilled, but Segarra says there will be no layoffs.

The budget would have to be approved by the city council before taking effect.

Under the budget proposal, the city’s 3-1-1 and 9-1-1 call center operations would be merged.

The Office for Young Children will be combined with Family Services and Recreation.

The previous mayor, Eddie Perez created the Office for Young Children in 2005.
