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. Since only one was approved by local voters, the City Council has been forced to make more deep cuts in the budget.
A city spokesman said there is no way these depths of cuts can be made without damaging the quality of municipal services such as recreation, fire, police, street maintenance, code enforcement, leaf vaccuuming and snow removal. Attempts have been made to make these cuts as painless as possible.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
