(May 31, 2013) – Today, Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra made the following statement regarding the fiscal year 2013/14 adopted budget:
“All along I’ve fought for a budget that does not compromise public safety, does not hinder essential services and doesn’t increase taxes on residents and businesses. With Council’s support, we accomplished that today. This budget allows the Hartford Police Department to keep their new incoming class in 2014 and keep community policing intact. These efforts alone will ensure that Hartford remains a safe urban area."
