The Ventura City Council has adopted its $44-million operating budget, eliminating 70 jobs, instituting a hiring freeze and cutting costs in every department. City leaders decided to discard the city's pre-dawn July 4 fireworks, disband the team of police officers that focuses on traffic enforcement and cast aside all crime prevention programs except for Neighborhood Watch. The city initially proposed to trim $24,500 from nonprofit groups providing various services to the poor.

Parks and street trees in Ventura may look shabbier in a few months. Recreation programs almost certainly will be dropped or scaled back. Staffing at community centers will be reduced. And that could be just the start of what looks like a bleak future for the city's parks and recreation programs, officials say. On July 1, Ventura probably will not have a Parks and Recreation Department. To save money, the department is being eliminated and its duties divided between two other city departments.

Ventura officials on Tuesday urged City Council members to sharpen their budget axes because they will have to make at least $3.5 million in cuts this year--possibly more if the state Legislature makes further reductions in the city's tax revenues. "We've got an ugly scene in front of us," Mayor Gregory L. Carson told his colleagues during a three-hour budget session. City managers warned council members they will have to make hard decisions to eliminate $3.

Ventura city officials on Friday unveiled a proposal to slash up to $3.5 million from the city's budget, eliminating as many as 41 jobs and scrimping on everything from tree trimming to bullets for police officers. No department went unscathed, and if the proposal is adopted by the Ventura City Council next month, residents next fiscal year can expect shabbier parks, unfixed broken sidewalks and fewer police officers. The council needs to cut only $2.
