Budget Cuts

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.
