The Yakima City Council has some hard decisions to make to help fill a $780,000 gap between expenses and revenue for 2019. Budget talks continue this week. Mayor Kathy Coffey says there will be cuts and they'll be felt across the board. But the most visible proposed cuts? "Probably the most glaring would be the 4th of July and Cinco De Mayo celebrations."
And she says the city has plans to talk to the Yakima School District to take over operations of lions pool in 2019.
No decisions are final yet. That won't happen until December as budget talks continue this week. The next budget hearing is set for Thursday at 5:00 p.m. at Yakima City Hall.
Coffey will appear on The Morning News on Thursday at
7:45 a.m. on KIT.
