FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Fort Wayne's budget is now in the hands of city council.
Mayor Tom Henry announced the balanced budget last week.
It shows the city is taking in more money than it's spending.
That's after the city hires 25 new firefighters and police officers, while adding an extra seven officers.
Now city council will cut the budget over the next few weeks.
"Any cuts we would make would add to the cash balance. The greater the cash balance you have the better reserve you have in the economy does take a turn," said councilman John Crawford.
The final budget needs to be approved by October 23.
