Saying he was worried about the “financial aspects” of a proposal to buy surveillance cameras to install downtown, City Council President Scott Hente voted in opposition Tuesday.
Hente said he wanted to see the “big picture financials” given that the Bach administration has been bringing supplemental budget appropriations in recent weeks with plans to bring more.
“I’m very worried about this from a financial standpoint,” Hente said.
“I’ve been doing this for nine years,” he added, referring to his time on council. “I’m probably more concerned now even than I was a couple years ago about the financial future of this city, and I just want to see the big picture. I don’t know how we can keep piecemealing this and figure out how it’s going to fit.”
