Mayor Adams’ $107 billion executive budget reverses some recent cuts, still trims across-the-board


Mayor Eric Adams on Wednesday revealed his balanced $107 billion executive budget for Fiscal Year 2024, a spending plan that reverses trims to the city’s libraries and Cultural Affairs Department proposed in his latest belt-tightening measure, but still imposes across-the-board cuts.

While the city’s three public library systems — the New York, Brooklyn and Queens Public Libraries — and the Department of Cultural Affairs were spared from Adams’ latest round of budget cuts, enacted earlier this month, they’ll still be subject to cuts from his two previous cost-savings plans.
