SAN BERNARDINO - A budget that cuts employee benefits and eliminates unfilled police officer positions will come before the City Council on Monday, several days before the city files a court document incorporating ideas from the plan.

If passed, the plan to reduce employee compensation by $26 million - including some already-approved cuts - and defer another $34.9 million would become known as the city's pendency plan, guiding spending decisions while the city is in bankruptcy or until the end of Fiscal Year 2013-14.

The City Council voted Nov. 19 to delay the decision until the 3 p.m. Monday meeting at City Hall, 300 N D. St.

The version of the plan attached to the city's meeting agenda does not include "minor" changes that council members said they worked on with the City Manager's Office to make since then.
