(Hartford, Conn./CBS Connecticut) - The budget process begins in earnest tonight in Hartford.

The City Council is holding a public hearing tonight on Mayor Pedro Segarra’s proposed $577.5 million spending plan for FY 2015.

In releasing the package last week, the mayor proposed a tax rate increase of 3.4 %.

In addition, Segarra is suggesting selling of some city assets managed by the Hartford Parking Authority to the tune of $34 million.

Just over $18 million in spending cuts are being proposed, as well as the elimination of 99 positions, most through attrition.

Tonight’s budget hearing gets underway at Bulkely High School at 6 p.m.
