SAN ANTONIO -- UPDATE: City Council voted to approve the 2019 FY budget on Thursday morning.
The San Antonio City Council is expected to approve the 2019 Fiscal Year budget on Thursday.
The $2.8 billion budget will continue to fund police, fire and other city departments, but there is also money set aside for basic infrastructure maintenance improvements.

Public safety will get the biggest pie of the budget pie; Nearly $795 million of the general fund budget ($1.26B), which amounts to 63 percent.
