Residents give feedback about proposed SLC budget

Local News

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski has submitted her final budget as mayor, and on Tuesday night the public is invited to share their thoughts.

The budget is for more than $300 million.

Some highlights:

$4 million for 110 hybrid police vehicles, which officials say will save the city on fuel costs.

There will also be funding for police cameras that turn on automatically.

“$600,000 in the mayor’s budget for new, automatic police body cameras,” said Matthew Rojas, spokesperson for the Mayor’s office.

“These are body cameras that actually will turn on when certain actions are taken by police officers, whether that’s drawing a weapon, or taking out their taser, or getting out of their vehicle, the body camera automatically turns on rather than having the officer have to initiate that itself.”

The council is required by law to vote for a balanced budget by the end of June.
