In addition, here is an on-the-record statement from Mayor Bronin regarding today’s FY2017 budget actions:

"I want to thank all of the members of the Hartford City Council for their hard work on this budget. The City of Hartford faces huge fiscal challenges, but this budget demonstrates that we are willing to make the difficult choices needed to get our fiscal house in order. This budget still depends on achieving significant concessions in labor negotiations. And in the coming months, we have to work hard to build a regional and statewide consensus for the kind of partnership that will help us get Hartford healthy for the long-run. But the tough choices reflected in this budget get us one step closer to a stronger, more sustainable future for our Capital City."
