Troy budget woes

On Monday, Mayor Harry Tutunjian vetoed the City Council's budget resolution which had moved more than $500,000 from various city departments into a contingency fund.

The council responded saying that they will call a special meeting as soon as Thursday to override the veto.

Tutunjian said that, while he disagreed with the changes made, he voted the legislation because the council did not follow proper budget procedures and because the resolution would leave the city with an unbalanced budget for the first time in more than 10 years.

Council President Clement Campana, D-At Large, said he planned to check with the majority's legal counsel to determine if anything had been done improperly and would fix it if that was the case.

Jim Franco has the rest of the lowdown so far.

Keep checking back for further updates on the matter on this blog and The Record's Web Site throughout the week.

I think Campana the clown should have checked with his counsel before he did this! What is wrong with this picture? Will they ever learn? November - November- November!!! It can't come quick enough...
