City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Finance Chairman Domenic Recchia propose alternate cuts they say can spare Mayor Bloomberg from having to close 20 fire companies.
Quinn and Recchia:
A mere 5 percent cut in the following areas of the contract budget alone would result in $50 million in savings – more than enough to keep all 20 fire companies open:
- $514 million in unspecified “Contractual Services – General”
- $290 million for “Data Processing Equipment” and “Computer Consultants”
- $101 million for “Legal Services”
- $134 million for “Professional Services – Other”
