Statement From Mayor Bill de Blasio on FY2016 Budget Adoption

June 26, 2015

“Today’s Council vote formalizes a responsible, progressive, and honest budget that will build a stronger, safer, and fairer New York City while protecting our long-term fiscal health. Together with the Council, we are making targeted investments that will lift up New Yorkers around the city, while also boosting reserves even further and keeping out-year gaps below historical averages. Thank you to Speaker Mark-Viverito, Chair Ferreras-Copeland, and the entire Council for their partnership.”
