Huntington Beach fire pits on budget cut list

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Everything from fire pits, library services and public safety are on the chopping block in Huntington Beach.

Earlier this week, the City Council received a list of proposed budget cuts. Among the cuts, a 50-percent reduction on fire pits on the beach.

Officials say this may result in people complaining there aren't enough fire rings to have bonfires.

Other possible cuts include: reducing the amount of hours police can use their helicopter, eliminating six full-time city positions, cutting part-time positions, and doing away with the weekly story time program at Helen Murphy Library.
