The city is looking to balance its 2014 operating budget by making personnel cuts in the Fire Department later this year, a move the union opposes. Any more manpower decreases in the department will put residents and firefighters at risk, Brotherton said. The department already has adjusted to severe cuts previously, reducing response teams.
“It would be negligent to allow any more cuts,” Brotherton said.
