Mayor Haslam Presents the Budget

April 29, 2004 - Mayor Bill Haslam today presented a budget for 2004-2005 that "sets the stage for moving our city forward over the next four years."

"We want to be a city that provides excellent services, makes investments, takes care of people, and sets priorities," the Mayor said. "In the budget I present to Council, we will be doing the city's work with fewer people than last year, in fact, fewer than anytime in the last eight years.

"We're cutting the bureaucracy, but not the service."

The Mayor's budget is aligned with the administration's goals of stronger and safer neighborhoods; more and better jobs; and efficient and accountable city government.

New initiatives include a 48-hour guarantee to fix potholes and a 3-1-1 Call Center, where citizens can call one number in city government to receive help. The Call Center, the Mayor explained, will also make the city more efficient.
