Scott Willis / WAER News

Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner has released her budget for the upcoming fiscal year, and it once again holds the line on property taxes and water and sewer rates.    Miner says the $674 million spending plan is the result of continued difficult fiscal decisions that don’t require more sacrifice from residents of the 23rd poorest city in the nation.

Syracuse homeowners will be paying 1.5 percent more on their upcoming city tax bills in July.  The Syracuse Common Council approved the measure today to override Mayor Stephanie Miner’s spending veto.
