Colorado Springs mayor will ignore council

COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach says budget changes by the city council are illegal and he plans to ignore them.

Bach said Thursday he has the right to move money within the budget, despite a new city ordinance that would require council approval.

Council member Andy Pico said the appropriations change makes the city’s budget more transparent and will not create an undue hardship on the executive branch.

Both sides say the issue is likely to end up in court.
