UPLAND – The City Council and residents will hear an update on the city’s dire financial situation during Monday’s meeting.
The city is still waiting for the results of its annual audit, but officials expect cuts will need to be made in the near future.
“We’re waiting for the audit to actually see where the dust settles,” City Manager Stephen Dunn said.
City officials are reviewing a proposal from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department to take over police services and they are out to bid for fire services.
Council members did not take any action on a report presented to them in June to outsource the management of the library.
“We have too many employees. The citizens expect a certain level of service. I understand that, but we can’t afford it,” Dunn said.
The council cut the city’s 2012-13 fiscal year budget by $3.3 million in June by borrowing water enterprise funds and making $2.3 million in cuts to city departments and services.
