City has 'healthy cash balance' yet lays off firefighters
The Ohio city is laying off 21 firefighters and closing 1 station despite having an extra $1M for capital improvements

City Council members at Thursday's annual budget hearings agreed to an administration suggestion to transfer that sum from what is projected to be a $6.1 million cash balance when this year ends.
