The Reno City Council met this week to discuss how to spend tax payer’s money for the fiscal year 2016 budget, which is nearly $170 million. Reno Public Radio's Danna O'Connor reports much of that money will go toward public safety.
More than two-thirds of that budget will be spent on adding nearly 50 new public safety jobs. Ten of those jobs would go toward hiring 10 more Reno firefighters.
At the meeting, Councilwoman Neoma Jardon asked if the 10 firefighters would open up the browned out stations in the city.
