What should be the city's spending priorities?

The Worcester City Council will be setting property tax rates this fall based on Worcester's $650 million budget (up 2.7 percent), which was approved without changes for the year that started July 1. About 57 percent goes to education, 23 percent to city services, and 20 percent for fixed costs. Where should the city be spending more of this money as well as less in managing its priorities?
