Northampton’s fiscal 2014 budget draft is now in the hands of the City Council. Mayor David Narkewicz formally presented the $96 million spending plan to the council Thursday night. Narkewicz says the budget may have his name on it, but it’s ultimately every citizens’ budget in defining the kid of community they want to live in.
