DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Plenty of school districts are already aware of their budget problems, and now major cities are also beginning the process of discussing their upcoming deficits.

Dallas is holding a public hearing Wednesday on what is expected to be another multi-million dollar shortfall. Estimates have put next year’s deficit at as much as $96 million, but city manager Mary Suhm says there’s reason to be optimistic that things won’t be as bad as last year.

“Dallas’s situation on the local level is getting a little bit better when you see sales tax improving a little bit,” but Suhm adds that state and federal cuts could really hurt the city’s bottom line.

If you’re interested in speaking, call (214) 670-3738 or sign up at the City Secretary’s Office before 9:00 a.m. The meeting is at 1:00 p.m. in the city hall council chambers.
