Mayor Segarra: State Budget Provides Additional Revenues to Cities who Need it Most

(May 5, 2014) - Today, Mayor Segarra made the following statement regarding the Fiscal Year 2014-2015 Adopted State Budget:

“Hartford, like a lot of cities across Connecticut, drives significant economic growth while facing the harsh reality of shrinking budgets and disappearing revenues. Hartford is also unique in that most of our properties are untaxable, yet despite these real challenges we’ve sustained unprecedented growth over the last four years. We’ve done our part by holding the line on spending and investing in critical areas that spur growth. The State’s Adopted Budget does not jeopardize our momentum and helps us protect our most vulnerable populations. I applaud Governor Malloy, and the legislature for passing a responsible budget that invests in public education, in working families and provides assistance to urban areas that need it most.

“As a result of the increased revenue from the State’s Adopted Budget, I will restore the new police class in my proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2014-15 and the mill rate increase will be reduced to 2.3.”
