Berke answers Twitter questions about budget

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

On Wednesday night, Mayor Berke took to Twitter to answer questions about his budget.

Berke proposed a $212M budget last week.

It includes a 1.5 % raise for all city employees, additional officers, and an emphasis on public safety.

Wednesday evening Berke took questions from his office. About a dozen people participated.

Questions about the budget centered around everything from homeless programs to crime.

"They want to know about the specifics in the budget and I'm making sure they understand exactly what's in there," said Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke.

The city council is set to vote on Berke's budget later this month.
