COLERAIN, Ohio - Colerain Township officials will meet with residents Tuesday to discuss major budget cuts that could affect the police and fire departments.
The township budget was slashed by $1.5 million dollars in 2013, which leaves residents and officials to decide what will take the cuts.
Colerain Township administrators said they are also looking for alternative ideas to raise the amount of money that was cut this year.
The police department, fire department and parks department are all being considered for possible cuts in funding.
Officials said a parking fee at the local parks could be enforced, as well as the closing of certain parks altogether.
The community center could also be affected. Members are already worried after fees have doubled in the past year.
The budget meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday Jan. 22 at the Colerain Community Center.
