EUGENE, Ore. — The city’s budget committee will continue discussions Thursday night as it figures out a way to fill an estimated $6.3 million shortfall.
Last week, City Manager Jon Ruiz proposed $5.3 million in cuts to various city services, including libraries, fire, police, parks and recreation.
The service cuts currently on the table aren’t sitting well with many people, who argue that the city should find ways to balance the budget.
The budget committee will hold another public budget meeting to let people address their concerns.
The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Bascom-Tykeson Room at the Eugene Downtown Public Library, 100 West 10th Ave.
