Budget chair wants city approval delayed 

KANKAKEE — A move to adopt and approve the $27.2 million Kankakee municipal budget was put on hold one week ago.

Now Ald. Mike O’Brien, D-2, the Budget Committee chairman, who led the effort on July 20 to slow the approval process, laid out a timeline at Monday’s special Budget Committee meeting to push back the budget vote until Sept. 8 for its first vote and Sept. 21 for its final vote.

“This would allow us to finish our work” regarding a review of the 54-page document, O’Brien said, along with a deeper look into how past budgets have fared in terms of budgeted versus final numbers.
