Chattanooga capital budget passes first reading

by Cliff Hightower

The Chattanooga City Council approved a first reading of the 2012-13 fiscal year capital budget 5-2 tonight.

Mayor Ron Littlefield amended the budget suddenly Tuesday, throwing in money for a new indoor firing range for police. Councilwoman Deborah Scott laid down concerns ranging from repairs to the 21st Century Waterfront and more money needed for road paving.

Councilman Russell Gilbert and Councilwoman Deborah Scott vote no. Councilman Peter Murphy abstained and Councilwoman Sally Robinson was absent from the meeting.

The council will have the second and final reading next Tuesday.
