Council to take a stab at Brown's infrastructure plan

City lawmakers will hold a hearing on Mayor Byron W. Brown's proposed $22 million capital budget at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday in Room 1417 Council Chambers in City Hall.

(Update 5:40 p.m. Nov. 14 -- location of meeting was moved, per Common Council staff)

Last month, Brown proposed a spending plan for various infrastructure projects, including money for the Buffalo Zoo, Coca-Cola Field and street repaving.

(Read my story about Brown's proposal.)

Brown's spending plan called for $5 million for streets, curbs and sidewalks, $2.7 million for improvements at community centers and other city buildings, as well as $2.68 million for building demolitions.

Check out Brown's full proposal here.

The Council has until Dec. 15 to adopt a 2012 capital budget.
