The Annapolis city council is expected to approve tomorrow night a $55.6 million operating budget that includes only modest increases in city spending while maintaining the tax rate for property owners. The council is also poised to approve the $43.3 million capital budget, which funds construction and improvements.

Moyer - could pass with few changes other than those proposed by the finance committee with the mayor's support.
