A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
City Manager Lorne Kramer says some things the city has been
providing will have to be eliminated.
Budget director Mike Anderson projects plummeting sales tax
figures will leave general fund revenues 13-point-three (m) million
dollars below projections this year and 15-point-five (m) million
dollar shot of estimated expenses next year.
All departments, including police and fire, have been asked to
submit plans within three weeks for how they can cut 5 percent of
their budgets now and 15 percent by next year.
