The Baltimore City Council approved an overhaul of city government Monday night.

The measures would reduce the five member Board of Estimates to just the mayor, city council president and the comptroller.

It would also end the mayor's control of the board and give the council the power in city budget discussions. 

The council also introduced legislation that raises the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020.
