The Fort Worth fiscal 2014 budget proposal is set for review at this week’s City Council meeting.

 

Pre-council begins at 3 p.m. Tuesday Aug. 13, with the regular meeting starting at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 1000 Throckmorton St.

 

Presenting the annual plan at pre-council will be Jay Chapa, the city’s interim financial management services director.

 

Though details have not been released, the budget could include layoffs, some program cuts and other reductions, according to a June email sent by City Manager Tom Higgins to city employees.

 

Mayor Betsy Price has discussed budgetary challenges and described the city’s current budget as “unsustainable.”

 

Pointing at two lines representing expenses and revenue, the mayor earlier this year stressed the need to bring those lines together.

 

“It won’t be easy, but we’re up to the challenge,” Price said March 5 at the 10th Annual State of the City Address at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
