Mayor’s proposed budget revision delayed

According to a spokesperson, the Mayor’s Office will not be transmitting its proposed revision to the 2020 budget to the City Council today as was originally expected.

“It should still be this week,” said Kamaria Hightower, Director of Communications for Mayor Durkan.

The City Council’s Budget Committee was expected to begin discussion of the Mayor’s budget proposal tomorrow. Instead the committee will discuss issues related to the package of three “Amazon Tax” bills introduced by Council members Sawant and Morales, and initiate the inquest into the Seattle Police Department budget that was announced yesterday, according to Sejal Parikh, Budget chair Teresa Mosqueda’s chief of staff.
