Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman Unveils $766-Million Budget Plan
Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman laid out his blueprint for the next city budget. The longtime democratic mayor says the bulk of the $766-million spending plan will go toward the city's police and fire divisions. Ten million dollars will go toward the city's rainy day fund, reaching the goal of $50-million one year earlier than planned. That, Coleman says, will provide the city with financial stability. The mayor's budget plan now goes to Columbus City Council for a hearing.
