ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Albuquerque City Council has overridden Mayor Richard Berry’s budget veto.

Berry vetoed the council’s $534.1 million budget last week, calling it “a recipe to overpromise and under deliver.” But that budget will go into effect July 1 after the council’s action.

Berry and City Councilors Brad Winter and Pat Davis put together a compromise budget after the mayor vetoed the first one. But Councilor Klarissa Peña said the compromise budget had not received the public input that the budget approved by the council had received.

Several of the councilors who voted for the override noted that the council budget can be amended to fix the “glitches.”
