Why One Third of Birmingham City Council May Disapprove of Woodfin’s FY24 Budget

The Birmingham Times

One third of the Birmingham City Council pledged to vote no on Mayor Randall Woodfin’s latest proposed city budget at a Wednesday meeting where councilors expressed disapproval with code enforcement across Birmingham.

Councilors Valerie Abbott, Darrell O’Quinn and Hunter Williams all said that they would vote no if Woodfin’s administration doesn’t address their concerns around code enforcement with the budget.

Abbott said once she saw that Woodfin’s proposed budget for FY 2024 included no new personnel for code enforcement or public works, two of the areas about which councilors receive the most complaints, she was unhappy.
