FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin says the budget will be balanced if the unions agree to a 3-percent pay cut. Swearengin said she is optimistic a union agreement will happen.
There is word yet if unions such as the Fresno Police Officers Association will agree to the cuts. If they do not, the mayor says she will have no choice but to lay off dozens of city workers.
