Dubuque Deficit Leads to Hiring Freeze, Cuts

  • Photo
DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A projected budget shortfall has led Dubuque city officials to institute a hiring freeze and contemplate canceling dozens of improvement projects.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports hat city officials have projected a 2014 deficit of more than $1.43 million for the city's operating fund, as well as a deficit of $1.47 million in its capital improvement fund.

On Monday, the City Council will consider a number of cost-saving and revenue-generating measures proposed by City Manager Mike Van Milligen.

Van Milligen says decreased revenue from a nearby casino and race track, as well as a drop in local sales tax revenue, is mostly to blame for the budget shortfall.
