Today, the New Orleans City Council passed the City’s 2013 Budget. Council made a few, but not many modifications to what was proposed by the Mayor. City Council added $1 million for a NOPD recruiting class or two, took $300,000 from the Sheriff, added $300,000 for VERA’s pretrial services, restored funding to the LSU Ag Center for the 4-H Club, and included $100,000 for senior centers. I also think that the budget included $55,000 to fund City Planning’s Neighborhood Participation Program.
