Pittsburgh city council on Wednesday gave preliminary approval to next year's operating and capital budgets, which do not raise taxes.

Final votes are expected next week on the mayor's proposed $470 million operating budget and $65 million capital budget. Council made minor modifications to the spending plans during the past few weeks, but the total outlay hasn't changed.

The operating budget includes the city's daily operating expenses. Improvements such as street repairs are taken from the capital budget.

The five-member Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority, one of the city's two financial overseers, approved the budget under the condition that Mayor Luke Ravenstahl form a task force to seek voluntary payments in lieu of taxes from nonprofits. Last year's operating budget was $466 million.
