Herenton to Council

No tax increases, no layoffs, and a raise for employees.


Memphis mayor Willie Herenton told the City Council's executive committee this afternoon that the budget he plans to present April 21st will include no property tax increases, no layoffs, and a three percent raise for all employees.

"This is a strong city," said the mayor, "even in a declining fiscal condition."
