HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The city of Huntington passed a $45 million budget for the next fiscal year during Monday night's City Council meeting.

It includes a 3 percent pay raise for all city employees.

City officials said the budget sets the city up for the next three to five years. The goal is to get away from short-term gains that lead to long-term losses.

"If we're going to be as successful as we expect to be in the next 10 years, these next 60 days are going to give us the tools for just the next three to five years to propel us forward," Mayor Steve Williams said.

Exactly where that $45 million will go will be decided during the next 30 to 60 days.
