feated a proposed property tax increase
aimed at balancing the city's fiscal 1975
The 1 7 mill hike-a one-time emer-
gency levy would have generated some
$1 million in revenue for the city. That
amount will now have to be cut from the
1975 budget wtich cill ginitii effect on

Before the election, City Administra-
tor Sylvester Murray sal that if the
millage were defeated, "devastating"
reductions would have to be made in
The cuts will probibly come primarily
in the area of personnel. Murray has
proposed that some 30 full-time city
workers be laid-off and that other mu-
nicipal employes receive no salary in-
creases during the up-cominig year.
MURRAY ALISO recommended that
funds ear-marked for Community out
reach programs including drug help,
child and health care, and related opera-
tions be curtailed by about 590,000-
about half the original allocation.
"It's the city that lost," Murray said
at last night's City Council meeting. tte

These cuts will not be 'fat' but 'muscle'
and they will be felt," Murray said in
a letter mailed to city voters the week
before the election.
The lay-offs and particularly the no-
salary-increase stance taken by the ad-
ministration may lead to trouble with
the city's unionized employes that could
include strikes and lawsuits.

the near future to map out long-range
budget strategies. The millage defeat
