$1.2B Budget Approved by San Diego City Council



    The San Diego City Council approved its 2015 budget that comes with a general fund of $1.2 billion.

    The budget includes significant public safety funding, including additional police academy recruits, lifeguards and new police civilian positions.

    It also includes limited funding for homelessness services, extended library hours and infrastructure repairs like street lights and sidewalks.

    The budget was approved eight to one.

    Councilman David Alvarez did not support the budget saying it does not serve all neighborhoods in San Diego, only some.
