The budget for the city of Providence has been set.
Tonight the city council unanimously approved Mayor Taveras 642-million dollar spending plan.
It includes no tax increases.
More than half, 329 million dollars, will go to schools.
The police department is getting less money, the fire department a little more.
Thirty-five new firefighters will be hired, a move the mayor hopes will cut down on overtime costs.
