Burlington City Council candidate Tyler Huggins says the state of the city’s finances prompted him to enter the race.
He is one of 11 candidates for three open seats on the panel.
Huggins says he is running to get a lot done, starting with changing the way the city budget is put together.
He says instead of the traditional line-item budget format, he prefers an outcome-based plan.
"As it is titled, it is outcome-based," says Huggins. "You find out what the citizens want done and you allocate the money to those outcomes."
