The first of three public hearings on the city's proposed 1995-96 budget, which would be down 8.5% from that for the current year, will be Tuesday.
Under scrutiny will be a total proposed budget of more than $573 million.
Although 31 city positions are slated for elimination, including nine management jobs, the budget calls for the addition of nine police officers. Salaries for the new officers would be partially funded through a federal program.
Public safety continues to be a high priority for the city, which has added 42 sworn personnel to its Police Department in the past five years. During the same period, Anaheim has reduced its overall municipal work force by 241 positions.
The new budget, as proposed, would also restore Monday service hours at four branches of the city library, and services to youth and families would be expanded in response to community feedback about gang and drug problems in the city.
