WBZ reports Mayor Walsh today is submitting a revised, $3.6-billion budget to the City Council - about $65 million less than the first one he submitted, due to revenue losses associated with Covid-19.
The budget also includes a proposed $12-million shift from the police overtime budget to various public-health and "equity" budgets following the mayor's declaration that racism is a public-health crisis in Boston.
At the press conference on Friday at which he announced the overtime budget transfer, the mayor cautioned more cuts might be needed depending on what the state legislature and the governor finally decide on for local aid for the fiscal year that starts July 1.
