Common Council to review Brown administration's 2018 capital budget proposal

Buffalo Mayor Byron W. Brown's 2018 Capital Budget proposal has been filed and now it's time for the Common Council to review the $22.8 million spending plan.

Council Members will hold a budget workshop at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 21 in Council Chambers on the 13th Floor of City Hall. The meeting is open to the public.

The recommended capital budget is a fine-tuned version of the proposal crafted by the Citizens Planning Council, which reviewed more than $50 million in requests for capital spending, Brown said.

His spending recommendations include $6.8 million set aside for city-wide street and sidewalk improvements, $1.5 million for city-wide demolitions and building code compliance, and $1.3 million for equipment for the Parks Department and the Sanitation Division.

The Council has until Dec. 15 to adopt the recommended capital budget.
