Jacksonville's Deficit Could be Halved

Jacksonville City Council members cut the city’s deficit by more than half with proposed spending cuts across the budget. In its meeting on Monday, the council found more than $500,000 in cuts in the 2018 draft budget. The draft budget had a projected $900,000 deficit before the cuts. Among others, the council proposed cutting Jacksonville School System’s unallocated funding from $250,000 to $125,000. The city has about nine million dollars in reserve to draw from in case it runs a deficit in 2018.
