Breckenridge, Colo. (AP) - The Breckenridge Town Council has approved more than $1 million in cuts to recreation, replanting and other programs to help close a shortfall that could reach $3 million.

The cuts approved this week don't require any layoffs, but officials say some jobs will be eliminated through attrition.

Cuts to the recreation budget total $350,000 and include eliminating some outdoor education programs and cutting all recreation facility hours.

Other cuts include $200,000 in a replanting program and more than $146,000 in public works.

Officials of the mountain resort town estimate they have cut a total of $2.7 million over the past several months.
