City of Columbus Makes More Budget Cuts
From The Dispatch:
City makes more cuts
By Robert Vitale
Columbus city leaders restored money yesterday for limited yard-waste pickup later this year, but more than a dozen other budget cuts were added to an already lengthy list.
Among them is a special police strike force aimed at quelling summer violence on city streets. Mayor Michael B. Coleman has credited the concentration of police in high-crime areas for more than 2,000 arrests and the seizure of hundreds of guns.
