Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster unveiled his 2012 budget on Monday, one he says will keep the city's public workforce in tact while slightly raising taxes.

The plan comes in at just over $100 million, an increase of about $3 million over last year's budget, but the tax levy will remain about the same. Dyster said this was done without dipping into the city's "rainy day" fund.

He added that city workforce wages have jumped nearly $2 million and pension costs have gone up by a similar rate.
