So is the city budget really as voted on by the Council last Tuesday night or can it be changed? Can the mayor veto the budget? If so what does it take to override his veto? Just wanted to be sure that the budget is still going to retain the police department secretary, library funding,and a fulltime animal control person.

Does anyone have input regarding this?

It would be unfortunate if this were to happen.

I'm pretty sure it's a done deal. The state requires the final budget by the end of August. Although why the budget that starts on July 1 doesn't have to be finalized until the end of August is beyond me.

So, does that mean that it is signed and sealed?

I have heard rumors that it can be vetoed by the mayor

Here is the code...
6)
Powers as to ordinances and resolutions, veto power. The mayor has power to:
a.
Cause the ordinances of the city or town to be executed;
b.
Approve all ordinances and resolutions of the council adopted by it;
c.
Veto any objectionable part of a resolution or ordinance and approve the other parts. The veto of the mayor is subject to override by a two-thirds vote of the council.
(7)
Veto procedure.

a.
Veto of ordinances. The veto power of the mayor as to ordinances must be exercised in writing prior to the next regularly scheduled meeting of the council. Whenever the mayor vetoes an ordinance, the council must act at the next regularly scheduled meeting to either override or confirm the veto. Whenever the veto is overridden or the mayor fails to act, the ordinance shall take effect.
b.
Veto of resolutions. The veto power of the mayor as to resolutions must be exercised in writing at the next regular meeting. If the mayor fails to act, the resolution is approved. If the mayor vetoes a resolution, the governing body must act at the same meeting or its next regularly scheduled meeting to either override or confirm the veto. Whenever the veto is overridden or the mayor fails to act, the resolution shall take effect.
(Code 1981, § 2.06.010; Ord. No. 1215, § 1, 3-22-11)

What if the mayor was the tie breaker on the original vote? Doesn't that mean he already approved those items?
