Springfield City Commissioners are expected to vote Tuesday on the city’s 2017 budget. Officials are also expected to announce cuts to police, fire and other services after voters narrowly rejected an income tax boost in November.
The Issue 2 levy that voters failed to pass would have increased city revenues by raising the earned income tax. Now, Springfield commissioners say they’re forced to make budget cuts for next year.
The 2017 budget is expected to include cuts to police, fire and recreation funding.
