City Council Budget Battle Ruling

The budget battle is over after months of debate over a proposed city budget, the issue of discressionary funds and a mayoral veto of the budget.

A judge sided with 4 City Council members who say the funds are legitimate.

Judge Charles Price says Mayor Bright didn't have the power to veto the council's budget last November.

In January...4 members of the council filed a lawsuit against the Mayor and his veto.

Mayor Bright tells WSFA 12 News he disagrees with the ruling and will likely appeal.
