Last night, the Pensacola City Council unanimously approved a $226.6-million budget for FY 2018. The budget included $1.6 million for sidewalks and street drainage on Burgess Road. The meeting lasted one hour and 21 minutes, so about $2.8 million per minute. Mayor Hayward did not attend the meeting.
According to the city charter, Mayor Hayward may veto any line item in the budget within five days of adoption by City Council – which will be Monday, Sept. 25. If he does veto the item, it will take five council votes to override it.
