DENVER – Mayor Michael B. Hancock tonight thanked the Denver City Council for adopting a 2018 budget that will address many of the city’s highest priorities, including mobility, affordable housing and the critical needs of those experiencing homelessness and behavioral health challenges.
“A city’s budget should reflect the priorities and values of its people, and I want to thank City Council members for their vote tonight to approve a spending plan that does just that,” Mayor Hancock said. “This spending plan will improve transportation, connect more residents to economic opportunities, help make Denver more affordable for families, assist those in need, and strengthen our neighborhoods.
“This responsible, balanced and thoughtful budget plan does all of that while also maintaining healthy reserves and a strong credit rating. I couldn’t be prouder of our partnership with City Council to create this budget – it tackles head on many of our city’s most pressing needs while remaining fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars.”
