The city’s spending plan for fiscal 2018 comes with a healthy bottom line of about $632 million, some $13 million more than last year.

That, of course, after those intrepid souls on the City Council bravely hacked a whopping $622,112 from the city manager’s original proposal. While a large majority of the new spending will go to schools, many observers decried the lack of scrutiny on how their tax dollars are spent.

Hitch takes a little off the top to get to the bottom of this.
