YUKON, Okla. (AP) - Officials in an Oklahoma City suburb expect to make staff reductions by the end of April due to a budget shortfall.

New Yukon City Manager Jim Crosby says 10 to 15 jobs could be eliminated, and he says the city plans to trim department budgets and operating costs.

The Oklahoman reports (https://bit.ly/1qrJRoo) city officials announced last month that $1.3 million had been inappropriately transferred out of a bond fund to pay for general expenses, leaving Yukon with a funding shortage for the rest of the fiscal year.

Crosby says about 20 positions in the parks department were cut in February. The Yukon City Council voted last week to sell land initially planned for a new city hall.

Crosby says an audit of the city’s financial situation is expected to be finished next week.
