BOSTON — Survivors, first responders and relatives of those killed in the Boston Marathon bombing marked the anniversary Tuesday with tributes that combined sorrow over the loss of innocent victims with pride over the city’s resilience in the face of a terror attack.

“This day will always be hard, but this place will always be strong,” former Mayor Thomas Menino told an invitation-only audience of about 2,500 people at the Hynes Convention Center, not far from the finish line where three people died and more than 260 others were injured a year ago.

City obligated to fund some outside groups

Therefore, the city could not stop funding outside agencies altogether, as Councilwoman Sharon Brooks Hodge recently suggested.

The city’s fiscal 2015 budget proposal includes $1,735,522 for 24 outside agencies and programs. That amount is up $9,017 — a half-percent — from the $1,726,505 they are receiving this fiscal year.
