$31.5 Million must be cut from the City’s budget. Police & Fire are 85% of the budget (excluding debt).
Where should we cut to balance the budget?

How we solve it will shape arts & culture, recreation, senior and youth services and public safety for years to come.
Hear the options from City Councilmembers and the City Administrator.
