Press Pass: State and city budget woes likely to impact taxpayers

investigative_post.jpg

The city of Buffalo has exhausted most of its cash reserves following years of using the extra funds to cover budget gaps.

As Kelly points out, with the state unable to rescue future Buffalo budgets, the city may be forced to lean on taxpayers.
