GAUTIER, Miss. (AP) - About $400,000 has been trimmed from the budget of the city of Gautier as leaders prepare to ride out a reduction in sales taxes in a transition from the loss of a mall to the coming new Wal-Mart Supercenter and some accompanying new outlets.

The Mississippi Press reports (https://bit.ly/1r0rIHt) Mayor Gordon Gollott and the city council on Tuesday made cuts in many areas including the economic development/planning programs and the police and fire departments.

The fire department will experience a $110,576 reduction in its nearly $2 million budget; police will see a $145,000 reduction, going from $2.7 million to $2.6 million, and economic development/planning will lose $41,000 from its $723,057 operation.
