Republican Mayor Richard C. David released the following statement Thursday, signing into law the 2020 Budget Legislation following its approval from Binghamton City Council:
“The 2020 Budget is a responsible financial plan for the City’s future that includes our largest property tax cut to date and reflects the enduring priorities of this administration. From public safety and infrastructure to community development and flood mitigation, we’re fulfilling our commitments to residents and continuing to turn difficult challenges into significant opportunities.
I thank City Council for their bipartisan support of this budget. It’s a road map for not just delivering essential government services but also tackling the tough challenges residents expect us to take on.”
