Sac City Council to Use One-Time Funds to Balance Budget

Monday, June 21, 2010
The city manager’s original budget proposal included rotating closures, or brownouts, of four fire engines at a time, and major cuts to the parks department. The city council didn’t like those reductions and told staffers to find a way to avoid making them. Finance Director Leyne Milstein says the budget up for adoption meets that goal:
Milstein: “Specifically in the areas of our fire department eliminating two brownouts and our parks and recreation programs for summer youth programs, aquatics, mostly, some community centers and our senior center.”
There’s also money for new police officers. But here’s the catch: In order to do that, the city is increasing its use of one-time funds – something top officials hoped to avoid. That means next year’s budget cuts could be even worse.
