LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- After months of discussions, Louisville's Metro Council has passed a budget.
By a vote of 24 to 1, the Metro Council passed a budget which includes $25 million in cuts to city services.
The budget reopens the Middletown Library, resumes operations at two of the four public pools next summer and starts LMPD's training academy one month earlier.
While the budget does lessen cuts to public safety, it does call for 40 fewer LMPD officers and 15 fewer firefighters.
Mayor Fischer has until July 1 to sign the budget.
