HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - The 2022 city budget got the stamp of approval from Huntsville leaders on Thursday.

One major change from the original proposal is a $2 million increase for capital projects. This is due to council members Bill Kling and Frances Akridge pushing for more funding for sidewalks and road resurfacing.

There is a 23% increase in funding for infrastructure improvements included in the budget as well.

City employees will receive a 3% cost of living adjustment that will go into effect on October 4.

“Everybody came through and brought their ideas. Things got shifted around and tonight we have a document that is a very good blueprint for the upcoming fiscal year. I do like the way we do not always agree among ourselves, but“I like the way everybody came together. I think we have a very good budget document,” said councilman Kling,
