Cincinnati Fire Dept still dealing with brownouts

On any given day five Cincinnati fire trucks aren't in service because there's not enough personnel to man them.  That's what's called a brownout.  

Fire Chief Richard Braun told a Council committee this week the problem is only getting worse with an increasing number of retirements.

“One retirement can cause one brownout because our minimum staffing is four,” Braun said.  “So as soon as we drop down to three, then that piece of equipment is taken out of service.”

Cincinnati's Mayor is sending the City Manager's recommended budget to Council for its consideration.  

Mark Mallory praised the administration's budget Tuesday and Milton Dohoney.

The mayor did make about a $1 million worth of changes to the proposed spending plan.  

Mallory wants to restore $610,770 of funding for human services programs, some or all of $300,000 for Media Bridges, $50,000 for arts grants and $56,000 for a domestic violence advocate in the city's law department.

Dohoney said it wasn't possible to close the large gap with cuts alone.
