Statement from David A. Salvatore, Providence City Council President
After more than three years on the job, one would think the mayor and his administration would have a more comprehensive understanding of how the budget works. If this year’s budget isn’t approved, then the previous year’s budget goes into effect.
It is my hope that the administration will engage in a constructive dialogue with the Council to responsibly manage the budget. Fortunately, there are checks and balances in place so that both branches of government uphold their fiduciary responsibility to taxpayers.
