Emotions are running high in Florissant after the city council passed a bill adopting the budget for fiscal year 2014.
After the city council passed the bill during the Nov. 25 meeting, Mayor Tom Schneider, who missed the meeting due to medical reasons, sent out a statement saying that he will return the budget bill unsigned—which he did. Schneider said that he was urging the council to restore funding for equipment that it cut from the final budget. The council then sent out its own statement outlining the reasons the equipment funding was cut.
