BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) - The Broken Arrow City Council has
voted to eliminate four dozen jobs to cover a nearly $2 million budget deficit.
City Manager Jim Twombly said Tuesday that no city employees will be losing their jobs. The 48 positions being eliminated have been vacant for the past two years because of a hiring freeze.
Twombly says no layoffs are planned.
The council also voted to raise fees for water, trash and sewer service by about $15 per month.
