Chattanooga City Council members are set to put their final stamp of approval on Mayor Andy Berke's $212 million budget for the upcoming fiscal year tonight at their regular evening meeting.
The council will vote on the budget on final reading, solidifying funding for city programs and functions for the next 12 months. Last week, the group unanimously backed the budget on first reading, after last-minute changes were made to funding levels for paving and road repair in the city.
The group will also vote on the first reading of an amendment to the city code regarding special gathering permits. Berke announced his intention to seek the changes, targeted at reducing crime at the city's event halls, at a press event last week.
