Houston Mayor Annise Parker presented her proposed 2015 budget Thursday morning.
She unveiled a balanced $5.2 billion proposed total city budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2014.
"This $5.2 billion dollar plan is balanced and has been the case in every year in my administration, it does not require any tax increases," Parker said.
Some of the highlights include adding addition staff to animal control and help in the department that will speed up the process to green-light building permits.
One big plus for drivers includes more money to help fix all those potholes around town.
"We are also reprogramming an additional $10 million for pothole repair and street overlays," Parker explained.
The budget will maintain full funding of the $20 million Rainy Day Fund.
The council will now review the budget and it's expected to be passed by the end of June.
