Pittsburgh Mayor-elect Bill Peduto on Monday proposed budget amendments that would establish a new budget department and beef up the planning department.

To do that, he plans to cut $53,710 in salaries from the city Personnel and Finance departments, including the elimination of an assistant finance director.

The overall budget would increase by $16,164 due to additions in the planning department, but Peduto expects to equalize that through other budget moves still in the works.

Plans included transferring eight positions from finance to the Office of Budget and Management and adding another eight to the new office.

Peduto and Kevin Acklin, who will serve as Peduto's chief of staff, outlined the moves to City Council, which must approve them.
