The Star's Paige Rentz reports on the city of Anniston's budget preparations ahead of the start of the 2014 fiscal year on Oct. 1:

A budget presented to the Anniston City Council Tuesday would trim more than $1 million, cut employee positions and close some city park facilities.

Projected revenues adopted last September failed to meet expectations, leaving the city with a shortfall of more than $1 million. Next year’s proposed $35 million budget shaves an additional $157,000 off revenue expectations for the coming year.

A retirement incentive that offers those who sign on extended health coverage helped drive a reduction in employees in this budget to 372, down 13 from last year's budget.

For those interested in crunching the numbers the entire budget proposal is here.
