The increasing cost of public safety personnel and less money in Lodi’s general fund due to less tax revenue means the city is on its way to only paying for police and fire services out of the general fund. Every other department will have to find a way to pay for itself, City Manager Rad Bartlam confirmed, while public safety looks for more ways to cut costs.

“Some cities have public safety as over 80 percent of their budget. There comes a point when the entire general fund funds police and fire,” Bartlam said at a Tuesday morning city council study session on this year’s budget.
