As KSFR has been reporting, Santa Fe’s municipal budget for the coming fiscal year was approved during last night’s city council meeting. The 82.2 million dollar general fund budget closes Santa Fe’s 15 million dollar deficit. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that earlier plans to reduce Santa Fe city library hours were removed from the proposal. The council left it up to library leadership and the city manager to figure out the specifics, but hours at the main downtown library and two branch libraries will remain unchanged in the coming fiscal year. City Finance Director Oscar Rodriguez says Santa Fe’s budget is balanced for the first time in eight years or more.
