Hiroshima Back On Track For 2020 Bid
Japan Today reports the Hiroshima City Assembly at a special assembly session convened by Hiroshima Mayor Tadatoshi Akiba Wednesday approved a motion to reinstate most of the funding the city government requested for its bid to host the 2010 Summer Olympic Games, after voting down the request last week.
The city office originally wanted 25.69 million yen including one million yen to formulate the basic bid plan as part of its budget bill for the year starting Thursday, but the budget endorsed by a narrow majority Wednesday excluded the one million yen.
Akiba, who reportedly invoked his right under the Local Autonomy Act to ask for the assembly to reconsider its decision after its regular session ended last Friday, said after the session that despite the reduced budget, he will not seek another revote.Write or read comments about this article
