City Budget Director Concerned About Library Funding Plan

The Houston administration is raising red flags about an alderman’s request to divert more money to Springfield’s public library. 


Ward 2’s Gail Simpson asked budget director Bill McCarty to find a way to give Lincoln Library the funds it would need to hire extra staff and be open more hours each week.  McCarty says that could cost nearly a quarter-million dollars… and says Simpson favors taking that money out of the city’s cash reserves. 


Appearing live on 970 WMAY, McCarty warned against that idea, saying that spending down the reserves would be “fiscally irresponsible.”  [Aldermen will take final action on the new city budget next week.]
