Proposed Pittsburgh budget avoids tax increases for third year in a row

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and the Office of Management and Budget submitted a $555 million operating budget and $105 million capital spending plan for 2018 to the Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority Friday, which holds the line on tax increases for the third consecutive year and provides a boost to public safety and transportation spending.

Up 1.1 percent from this year’s budget, the Mayor’s proposed spending plan allocates funding for three police recruit classes and one firefighter recruit class, an expansion of Shotspotter- a gunshot detection system to help zero in on violent crime- for the entire city, and provides $1.6 million for the improvement of police vehicles.
