Talk of tax cap override increases in Manchester
After rejecting one proposed budget Tuesday, the board voted to convene a special meeting Tuesday, June 10 — the deadline under the city charter for a final budget.
Craig said she too is hopeful a consensus could be reached on a final budget.
He said he hoped to meet with the aldermen over this week. “I think everybody should be talking to everybody, so we have consensus and come to a common understanding on what’s best for the city of Manchester,” he said.
During the public comment period at Tuesday’s meeting, several residents urged the aldermen to uphold the tax cap.
But a number of aldermen said they heard from many constituents who are fed up with rising crime and poor roads.
Should the mayor veto the budget or a line item within it and there aren’t enough votes for an override, the aldermen will have until June 30 to muster enough support for a final budget.
