The city of Sacramento's latest budget proposal includes a surplus for the first time in seven years.
City Manager John Shirey is projecting a $2 million surplus in his $872 million proposal for the 2014-2015 fiscal year.
The budget includes an additional 14 police officers, funding for programs that aid the homeless and the full operation of each of the city's working swimming pools.
Shirey says "the city is on a path to recovery from the worst recession in recent history" thanks in part to Measure U funds.
The voter-approved sales tax increase is raising an addition $31 million per year.
