Metro Spending Plan Up For Final Vote

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Metro Nashville's proposed spending budget goes to a final vote this week.

Mayor Karl Dean has asked for a 6% increase from last year, totalling $1.8 Billion. The key points of the plan are education and public safety.

He wants to give an additional $26 million to Metro Schools and set aside almost $3 Million for a new crime lab and precinct in Madison. 

With all this extra money moving around, the mayor said none of it will increase property taxes. The plan goes before the Budget & Finance, Planning, Zoning, and Historical Committees for a final vote on Tuesday. It will then go to the Metro Council for approval.
