Providence budget talks are back on track, according to the Mayor. The city’s finance committee is expected to meet Wednesday to vote the budget out of committee.
The city council rejected a $750 million budget last week, after initially approving the plan. The Council did vote to pass a tax levy. Mayor Jorge Elorza accused the council of asking residents to pay taxes without knowing how their money will be spent.
After meeting with council leaders Monday, Elorza says he believes he’s addressed their concerns about the budget.
