2015 Budget Approved with Bipartisan Council Support

Budget address public safety needs, supports schools and protects taxpayers

Indianapolis – Tonight, the Indianapolis City/County Council approved the 2015 budget in a bipartisan vote that included input from both parties. The budget addresses critical public safety issues, but holds the line on taxes and protects critical school funding. “I am pleased we came to a bipartisan agreement that serves our entire community,” said Council President Maggie A. Lewis. “A budget that improves public safety and protects taxpayers is a win for all our residents.”

“Throughout the budget process, the Council majority and Mayor’s Office worked together,” said Council Vice President John Barth, “From the beginning, the Council’s goal has been to support IMPD officers while minimizing the impact on taxpayers. We were able to do both with this budget.”
