The City of Eugene is facing a multi-million dollar gap in its budget, so it's asking residents' help to shape a solution. A series of community meetings starting this week are being held at local high schools to discuss the situation.
Last year, Eugene voters defeated a City service fee. To balance the budget, funds were transferred from its Reserve account. But, that fix was only supposed to fill the gap for one year. City Councilor Claire Syrett says if they are not able to find some new solutions, they might be back in the same position as last year.
