      Sunnyside closer to passing budget

      SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- Sunnyside is one step closer to next year's budget after Thursday night's packed public meeting.

      No formal decisions were made but there was a lot of negotiating.

      A poll showed council is not in favor of cutting the deputy police chief.

      Council is in favor of a utility tax increase between 6 and 18 percent.

      Firefighters are willing to forgo cost of living expense increases.

      Council says they need to make up about $1.7 million through higher revenue and cuts.

      The next meeting is scheduled for December 27.
