Ford, Foster outline plans for spending tax dollars more wisely
ST. PETERSBURG — The City Council approved its $207 million general budget last week in just under two hours.
Don't expect such a smooth process next year.
Mayoral candidates Bill Foster and Kathleen Ford vow to drastically change the way the city allocates public dollars. They want to require city employees to justify every expense as a way to save money and produce a more efficient City Hall.
