Live within your means

-A +A
Over the last months, there has been much written about the reduction of the General Fund and how it will affect city services. Nothing has been reported on how other funds such as administration, reserves, etc. have been cut. Our city, like our state, has fallen into the trap of counting the chickens before they were hatched. We committed our expenditures based on the days of plenty. We must now draw in our belts and live on our present income. Many of us will not get an increase in income to offset higher taxes but we are still subject to rising prices. RONALD PRINCE, Lincoln
