Fire department could face overtime cuts to cover city deficit

(KMOV) – St. Louis might be forced to make some mid-year budget cuts, and the fire department could be hit hard.

Early projections show the city is facing a $10 million deficit. Police are expected to under spend by $2 million, but the city says the fire department is on track to overspend by $3 million.

The city is looking at hiring a private ambulance service to cover the city during shift changes – that would be an effort to cut overtime at the fire department.
