GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The Grand Junction City Council has approved the City’s 2010 budget.

Monday night Council members voted unanimously to pass the $134 million budget proposal.

Officials say that number represents a $15 million reduction from the 2009 budget. As a result, officials say they’re cutting 20 full-time city positions and have decided not to put new projects out to bid for the first quarter of 2010.

Most City departments saw cuts in their individual budgets, but funding for police and parks and recreation increased.
