Sacramento’s budget process for the next fiscal year started earlier this month with some big changes. Typically the city manager and finance manager will prepare a budget for the council, but this year Mayor Kevin Johnson and the city council are getting proactive.

Sacramento City Manager John Shirey has been watching the changes unfold and joins us to talk about the city’s new approach to budgeting.
