Mayor Goss vetoes budget ordinance

Friday, November 20, 2015

Mayor Mary Jane Goss has vetoed the 2015-16 biennial budget update ordinance. On November 20, 2015, Mayor Goss gave notice to the City Council regarding the veto.

Mayor Goss vetoed the ordinance amending the 2015-16 biennial budget. The main reason was to encourage the City Council to not use the City’s banked property tax capacity, which was a part of the ordinance adopted by the City Council.

In the Mayor / Council form of government, the mayor has veto power over certain types of ordinances, including Biennial Budget Amendment Ordinance 1108. The City Council may meet to consider the veto and potential override or changes in the ordinance.
