A Cincinnati Council committee is expected to approve a budget plan Wednesday that now includes no layoffs for police officers and firefighters. But about 60 other city employees will likely be out of work in a couple of weeks.
Back in March the city manager proposed laying off 344 city workers including police officers and firefighters.
Right now there are three separate budget motions and the plan is to combine them in one large item for Wednesday vote.
However the city's longer-term issue of spending more money than it takes in will continue.
