Councilman seeks more money for comprehensive plan
DAVE GONG | The Journal Gazette
Despite being unable to add expenditures to the Fort Wayne city budget, one city councilman is asking Mayor Tom Henry's administration to consider funding for comprehensive planning.
Although the City Council is only allowed to make cuts to the mayor's proposed budget, Councilman Michael Barranda, R-at large, made it clear during Tuesday's City Council meeting that he would like to see appropriate funds earmarked to update the comprehensive plan.
"I would support the administration's efforts to fund any type of comprehensive planning," Barranda said. "It has not been done under this administration yet."
The City Council must approve its annual by Oct. 31.
