LINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - The news from the Linton, Indiana city council meeting was not good news for the Linton Police and Fire Departments.
The Linton Police Department started their fight against potential budget cuts this past summer. The department knew there was a chance they'd be on the chopping block with tight purse strings for the city.
The Fire Department learned about a week ago that they were at risk for those cuts as well.
At the budget approval meeting on Columbus Day, the city council voting unanimously in approval of the prepared budget.
The amount of money cut from both departments equals out to one fire fighter and two police officers from two already slender public safety options.
A representative of the Fire Department told News 10 they were still optimistic that there would be good news still to come. Talks between the departments and the city remain open, meaning there is a chance of a resolution of a different kind.
The FOP President of the Linton lodge said they've heard the cuts could come as early as mid-November.
