    There will be a meeting tonight on the city of Hartford's budget.

    Officials in Hartford want to know what you think about the city's budget and there is a meeting tonight.

    There has been some concern in the community about some cuts Mayor Pedro Segarra has proposed.

    He has recommended cutting 53 jobs from the police department, including getting rid of the incoming police class this summer, as well as vacant positions from retirement and attrition.

    Segarra said public safety will not be compromised.

    “We’ve been in communication with the chief and I think that he is onboard in terms of trying to manage his resources in his department in a way that does not impact public safety,” Segarra told NBC Connecticut earlier this month. 

    A special hearing on the budget will be held at Bulkeley High School.

    The mayor, city council members and other local officials will attend.

    The high school is located at 300 Wethersfield Avenue and the meeting will be in the auditorium. It starts at 6 p.m.

    To speak during the meeting, sign up when you arrive.
