SAN ANTONIO (Sept. 12, 2018) – Today, City Council voted to approve the FY2019 Budget. For the second year ever, an “equity assessment” was used in assessing how we address the needs of our community. This ensures that areas that may have been historically overlooked have the opportunity to make up for lost time. Equity aims to understand the needs of the community and fairly distribute resources.


“We are so excited about what’s in store for District 2 with the passing of this budget,” Councilman Shaw stated. “From increased funding for infrastructure and facility improvements to increased funding for key programs, 2019 will be a fruitful year for our district. We worked with our constituents from start to finish and advocated for funding based on our shared priorities.”
