Tiny Trumps and the 2018 Fiscal Budget
The budget proposals remain dedicated to the community despite perceived opposition from Harrisburg and the Trump administration.
“We just want to have a system where we can depend on the rule of law,” Mayor Kenney said ta the Multicultural Roundtable budget briefing.
When introducing the 4.4 billion budget that focused heavily on infrastructure, health and human services the Mayor briefly discussed the impact of the current presidential administration and the impact Harrisburg will have on the city as it tries to improve on services provided to the community as a whole in the coming year.
From investing 1.9 million to the opioid problem to $90 million for the 1-95 Chestnut and Walnut development, the 4.4 billion budget is an effort to keep Philadelphia afloat in the times of political adversaries at the state and federal level.
“Other folks want to be little Trumps,” said the mayor during a question and answer sessions with the crowd after his opening statements.
But the message was clear that the city will do what it can to maintain address the issues that are prevalent over the city.
But the highlight of the effort to keep the city thriving and communities served s the program-based budgeting efforts.
Over the 20 departments each area and service will be assigned a budget down to the programs.
With performance review efforts, the programs have been given new performance measures to see how they stack up which will later determine the amount that the companies are supplied after the end of the fiscal year and with performance reviews.
