The Jefferson City Council approved the 2013 city budget on Monday.

Councilman Ralph Bray says it took the council over a month to come up with the $31 million budget.

“We were able to be more efficient by making cuts through all the different departments and kind of redirect some funds to programs that needed funding and programs that are working, making Jefferson City a better place to live,” Bray says.
