“We want to give El Pasoans that power, that direct democracy to say, this is what we want to do with our utilities, with our electricity. This is the future we want. And really, that it’s our right to define those things.”
Austin City Council is about to pass a new budget. Here’s what that could mean for you…
The draft budget proposal includes a 2.7% increase in city taxes & fees for the average Austinite.
In an effort to better attract & retain city employees, the city will also likely raise its minimum wage.
Funding for emergency rental assistance and neighborhood resiliency hubs will also likely be included in the budget.
