Wheeler Releases $4.7 Billion Budget

(Portland, OR)  --  Portland's overall budget, as proposed by Mayor Ted Wheeler, is 400-million dollars more than that of last year.  The four-point-seven-billion-dollar spending plan includes a general-fund budget of 622-million dollars.  Under the plan, the mayor wants to eliminate the mounted patrol and the Portland Fire & Rescue Dive Team.  Wheeler also wants to delay the issuance of body cameras to police officers until a policy is developed for it.  Wheeler also wants to use 50-million dollars this year to launch the Build Portland program, a 20-year program to upgrade the city's roads, parks, and other infrastructure.
