A city spokesperson said on Tuesday, Atlanta’s 2019 budget process has been delayed by a March cyber attack. The attack scrambled a swath of government data, temporarily closed courts, halted bill payments and slowed other key services in the most devastating “ransomware” assault on a major U.S. city.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms took office in January. She was due to make her first budget pitch more than a week ago. Under city charter, Atlanta’s mayor is supposed to propose a budget no later than the first city council meeting in May.
This year, the proposal was delayed. a city spokesperson said in an email the cyber incident compromised Atlanta’s budget planning system for weeks.
