Davenport officials look for ways to cut $900,000 in budget

DAVENPORT (AP) -

Davenport officials are considering eliminating a dozen jobs to cut $900,000 from the 2017 city budget.

The proposed cuts could include three police jobs and three jobs at the fire department.

Interim Police Chief Paul Sikorski told city officials Saturday it would hurt to lose a juvenile court liaison officer and two other positions.

City officials are planning to make these cuts because Davenport's tax base hasn't grown as fast as its costs as negotiated salary increases took effect.
