The City Council's budget committee begins a week of hearings today to discuss financial details of Mayor Martin O'Malley's proposed $2.2 billion budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
City budget officials at noon will begin the presentations with an overview of a plan that would boost spending by 3.2 percent from the current fiscal year if approved by the council later this month.
Representatives from the fire and health departments, the state's attorney's office and Enoch Pratt Free Library will follow with reports on their individual budgets at City Hall's Curran Conference Room.
Tomorrow, televised budget hearings begin at 5 p.m. at council's City Hall chambers, featuring the Police Department, the Baltimore Development Corporation and the Department of Transportation.
On Thursday officials from the Board of Elections, the Department of Public Works and the Department of Housing and Community Development will present their spending plans.
