YUMA, AZ- The City of Yuma held their work session Tuesday night to go over the City’s budget.
They discussed the possibility of cuts to several programs including the parks and recreational department. However, in tonight’s council work session Yuma Mayor Doug Nicholls put rumors of recreational programs and even the closure of a fire station to rest, saying the fire station will go untouched and not every program will be cut. He further stated that the council instead will consider a five percent increase to parks and recreation activity fees to make up for state cuts. Mayor Nicholls is opposed of having a five percent increase and the council will decide on that motion Wednesday evening.
