Detroit Lakes moves to cut $250,000
The city of Detroit Lakes is bracing for $250,000 in cuts this year.
That's because it expects to lose almost 19 percent of its Local Government Aid, which will be a $180,000 hit to its $5 million general fund budget.
The other $70,000 in cuts will be needed because of reduced earnings on working capital, ($35,000) and lower building permit fees ($35,000).
Each city department will feel those cuts -- and residents will as well.
