BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The Burlington City Council Monday unanimously approved the city’s 2022 budget.

This year’s vote was in stark contrast to last year where three Progressive councilors voted against the budget. But now the city gained approval by making new investments and expanding the newly created Racial Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Office.

New investments also include $2 million in energy efficiency funds and millions for infrastructure projects, like bike and pedestrian projects.
