The Pierce County Council unanimously adopted Tuesday a general fund budget of $274.8 million for next year.

The council’s 2013 budget cuts 42 positions, including 26 from the general fund for core government services. The total budget is $894.1 million.

The general fund budget is reduced from $275.6 million for this year.

The budget approved Tuesday is virtually the same budget the council moved forward on Nov. 6. It restores four law enforcement deputy positions while putting potential 1 percent cost-of-living raises for next year in limbo.
