More from City Hall: Budget adopted

8:25 p.m.:

The budget is adopted 5-2.

In the end, Palmer picked up the council majority. The mayor came, too. He lost Councilwomen Leslie Baranco Martin and Susan Eggman, who supported his first, failed budget.

Officer Steve Leonesio, the police union president, had made a last-minute appeal for the budget not to be adopted. He said the union is still in negotiations. He asked how the council could allow the fire union to put millions of dollars aside in assumed concessions, but not PD.

“It’s not fair,” he said.
