The monthslong budget fight in Macon-Bibb County that had closed libraries and parked city buses is over.

The Macon-Bibb County Commission voted 5 to 4 to approve a property tax increase Thursday. That will open up the flow of cash to the local health department, parks, public transit and other agencies that were either closed or near closing. There will still be cuts to make before the budget is final.
