(WICHITA, Kan.) — The Wichita City Council unanimously approves the budget for next year.
Currently, the city faces an $8 million deficit for 2011. As we've reported before, to make up the difference, the proposed budget focuses on layoffs and furloughs at city hall.
The budget also includes $600,000 for street maintenance and $2.5 million for incentives to lure new businesses.
The budget does not include any tax increases.
Wichita City Manager Robert Layton told Eyewitness News last month that the cuts will not impact police or fire protection on the streets.
