The Lafayette City-Parish budget is looking at a world of cuts next year.

A debate began on Tuesday after the subject of building two new fire stations came on to the floor during the meeting. The debate found that the budget will need $5 million in new revenue to maintain it’s current budget.

The main problem that arose was that the budget for this year has $5 million more in expenses than revenues with the revenue at $91.5 million and the expenses at $96.7 million.

“The public safety improvements are off the table barring drastic cuts in other departments.” said Chief Administrative Office Dee Stanley.
