SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (News4Utah) – Salt Lake City Council unanimously approved the $301 million budget for 2018-19.
The money will help build up city services such as park maintenance, public safety, affordable housing, and public transportation.
“We are committed to tackling bedrock issues with this budget,” said Erin Mendenhall, Council Chair. “The budget funds many needed services and projects, and it works in concert with a possible fall bond vote that would fund major repairs to our road system.”
A half-percent sales tax approved by the legislature and passed by council in May will help pay for additional services.
