South Bend mayor pleased with final budget


Including the caveat that nobody gets everything they want in a negotiation, Mayor Pete Buttigieg said Thursday that he was pleased with the budget the South Bend Common Council approved Wednesday night.

The council and the mayor did not see eye to eye on several major funding initiatives, including salaries for appointed officials and funding for the Smart Streets Initiative, but Buttigieg says this budget is a win for the city.  "The administration and the council are capable of working together to get something done," said Mayor Buttigieg.

Approving the $343.3 million dollar budget is just the first step, though.  The mayor told FOX28 "we still have to deliver" on the programs and initiatives approved Wednesday.
