ALBANY (WALB) - Albany city commissioners passed a balanced budget Tuesday night without a tax increase and without layoffs or furloughs.
Commissioners adopted a $111-million spending plan for the budget year that starts Friday.
Mayor Willie Adams says at a time when many communities are struggling with financial problems, he's proud the city of Albany was able to pass a budget that doesn't put more stress on employees or taxpayers.
"We're blessed during these economic times that we did balance the budget and that we have a small surplus. And we were able to give our employees a cost of living adjustment," said Adams.
The city still has $4.7 million in cash reserves.
