A budget is now on the desk of Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin.
The City Council adopted the budget for the 2013 year Thursday night.
The $233 million budget includes major cuts that Swearengin called for to stave off further cuts.
"I applaud the Council's adoption of the FY 13 budget. We have a good plan for the year and can move forward with implementing that plan," Swearengin said.
The mayor has ten business days to take action on the budget.
