PRESS RELEASE: Joint Council/RDA statement on Mayor’s line item vetoes of City budget

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“The Mayor’s veto was expected. The Salt Lake City Council and the Redevelopment Agency Board will be meeting at noon on Friday, June 28, for a potential veto override.

The Council, also acting as the RDA Board, has worked to develop more streamlined and transparent processes to get affordable housing dollars spent.

This budget does not slow down the process, and we have confidence the RDA staff and other City agencies can move forward on the accelerated timeline we have for affordable housing.

There are a number of inaccuracies in the Mayor’s veto statement which we will address in detail.

We look forward to a thorough discussion at Friday’s meeting.”
