FY14 Budget Trailer from City of Boston on Vimeo.

BOSTON (CBS) – Mayor Tom Menino has submitted his spending plan for the City of Boston for the next fiscal year. For his final budget proposal, the mayor decided to have a little bit of fun.

Menino unveiled his $2.6 billion budget in a parody of a movie trailer.

The proposal represents a 5.6 percent increase in spending, the largest in several years.

The video, titled “FY 14 Budget Trailer,” features clips from Argo and Zero Dark Thirty.

The budget sets aside money for the Dudley Square revitalization project, a new park in Charlestown for disabled children, and helmet vending machines for the bike-share program.

In March, Mayor Menino announced that he would not seek a fifth term. He has nine more months in office.
