Overtime pay freezes, shutting down the library a day a week, reduce summer rec funding and delay purchase of a new squad car-these are among the cuts facing the city of Perham.


And that's only "part one" of potentially more than $300,000 cuts between now and 2011.

Depending on the final action in St. Paul, Perham could be facing cuts of $50,000 to $138,000 in state aid--depending on where the governor and the legislature compromise.
