After a month of study sessions and rhetoric, the City Council has adopted a budget for the coming fiscal year in the city of Glendale.
The general fund spending figure is about $161 million, $10 million more than last year. The overall city budget, including utilities and all funds, amounts to $679 million.
The council still has some heavy money talks ahead, with the planned discussion at the end of the month over spending of $17 million in capital funds adopted as part of the budget. The talks will include decisions on the future location of the Montrose Library, the proposal for the city to buy Rockhaven Sanitarium, and the future of the Mountain Oaks property.
