City council is still looking for budget cuts


It's back to the drawing board once again for Farmington city staff.

Charged with finding $425,000 in budget reductions that will please the Farmington City Council, city staff now has two weeks before the next, and possibly last, workshop for the 2011 budget.

In that time, city staff must make sense of a new set of directives that came out of this week's budget workshop, held Monday night at city hall.
