Hazelwood Budget Cuts

Effect Rec Centers Hours

        The City of Hazelwood put two tax referendums on the August 5th ballot to create a stream of revenue to help offset its $1.42 million dollar budget deficit. Proposition S passed with a favorable vote of 60 percent; however, Proposition U failed with a favorable vote of 44 percent. Hazelwood needed both of them to pass.
