Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin could face rare opposition over $554 million budget for 2024

Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin faces rare major opposition from the city council today as some members threaten to give his $554.8 million budget a thumbs down vote.

At least three councilors, Valerie Abbott, Darrell O’Quinn and Hunter Williams in recent days threatened to vote ‘no’ to the budget, saying that the mayor failed to address major issues, such as the need for more code enforcement officers, in his spending plan.
