Edgewood officials will host a forum tonight asking citizens for feedback about how to trim the city’s budget.

The city is trying to close a $750,000 budget gap this year, and is considering options such as reducing its police force, cutting city staff and a raising its levy lid.

A utility tax is another option that may be discussed.

The budget forum takes place tonight from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Edgewood City Hall, located at 2224 104th Avenue East.
