National Briefing / NEW YORK

Job cuts, clinic closures are among budget hits

November 05, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

New York City will cancel the police academy's next class, cut hundreds of jobs and close dental clinics for poor children to trim its budget amid an economic crisis, a city official said.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg will announce those cuts and others today when he gives an update on the $59-billion budget, an administration official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the update had not been officially announced.

Bloomberg did not give details on his budget plan at a news conference but said he would probably ask for a "slowdown, but not really for a meltdown."
