Irresponsible and politically motivated is what Rockford Mayor Doug Scott is calling the budget amendments proposed by some republican city council members.
Council republicans are proposing a series of changes. They're designed to eliminate the mayor's proposal to borrow $4.5 million to buy police cars, dump trucks and fire equipment.
The GOP's are proposing a freeze of department head salaries, and cuts in all departments except public safety. The mayor says the proposals are not in the best interest of taxpayers.
