The budget office is now recommending cuts to several programs.
They include about $1.5 million from the library budget, $800,000 from the city's tree-trimming program, $1 million from the crossing guards program, and nearly $2 million from a program that replaces old squad cars.
The budget committee will consider the cuts on Monday.
