Constantinides Helps Pass Fiscal Year ‘16 City Budget

The City Council voted to adopt a balanced and fiscally responsible Budget for Fiscal Year 2016 (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016). The budget includes the hiring of additional police officers, six-day library service, new and enhanced City Council initiatives, services for seniors and children, and capital funding for parks and schools.

“I am proud of this year’s balanced city budget that includes many City Council priorities. This fiscally responsible budget will ensure that our streets are safer and cleaner, that our libraries are open six days per week, and is inclusive of children and seniors. The budget will also bring educational, environmental, and recreational improvements to our district. I thank Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Melissa Mark- Viverito, and Finance Committee Chair Julissa Ferreras for their leadership. I look forward to implementing these priorities that will benefit our communities and make our city more inclusive, sustainable, and engaged,” Constantinides said.
