Council members Charles Allen, Dillard Burnette and Brian Carico voted in favor of the finalized budget, while councilman Wesley Carter voted against it.
During a public hearing, King resident Carolyn Newsom thanked the council for “not taking the easy way out,” by not raising property taxes. She addressed the significant cuts made to the King Police Department. She said she agreed with the city council’s approach of taking a “top down” approach to cutting the department’s budget.
Newsom was the only resident who signed up to speak at Monday’s hearing.
