Youngstown council approves $167.8M budget for 2013

YOUNGSTOWN — Without much comment, city council approved Youngstown’s $167.8 million budget for this year.

Council voted 7-0 for the spending plan today.

The budget was discussed at seven council hearings with department heads between Jan. 14 and March 11. All hearings were done without a complete budget document.

Council met Monday, after receiving the proposal the previous Friday, to give it another look. Few council members had anything to say Monday, and even less today.
