The new budget will see a bit of an increase in local aid to Lexington.

 

Last Wednesday, Governor Patrick submitted his $34.8 billion budget to the Legislature. The proposed income tax hike is part of a comprehensive package aimed at investing in the state's infrastructure and in driving growth, Patrick said.

Take a look at how the numbers affect Lexington:
