Millington to Re-Examine Possible Budget Cuts

Millington's $400,000 budget deficit means major cuts and a possible tax increase. Police and fire jobs were on the chopping block, but that may not be the case anymore.
MILLINGTON, TN (abc24.com) - Millington's $400,000 budget deficit means major cuts and a possible tax increase. Police and fire jobs were on the chopping block, but that may not be the case anymore.

The Millington City Manager recommended laying off 19 city employees to close the budget gap, but the Board of Aldermen took that option out of next week's work session. They say they may have to raise property taxes.

"They can look at raising revenue, that's an option as well, but they're going to look at all of their options and try to decide which one would be the most productive for the city as a whole," stated City Manager Thomas Christie.

There will be a series of budget work sessions this month. The first one is next Monday, April 8, at 5 p.m. at city hall.

The board will vote in May on where they'll make their cuts.
