(Ogden-AP) -- Some city employees in Ogden may lose their jobs if revenue does not improve.
Comptroller Jon Arrington predicts a 400 thousand to 500 thousand dollar shortage in sales-tax revenue this year for the city's 107 (M)million dollars budget.
To combat increasing expenses and stagnant revenue growth, officials want to consolidate departments and cut programs.
Chief Administrative Officer L. Nate Pierce said almost always translates into the reduction of personnel and city employees.
In addition to program cuts, the only other option is to raise taxes, which has been ruled out by Godfrey.
