Jun. 30--HOLLYWOOD -- In less than two weeks, city officials will have to start looking for an estimated $22.7 million in budget cuts to make ends meet. But first, on Wednesday, they must vote on a proposed fire contract one commissioner warns will only make the city's financial problems worse, while turning firefighters into retired millionaires. The meeting is scheduled for 1 p.m. in City Hall. Fire union officials said Tuesday they have agreed to many concessions they say will save the city millions. The concessions include freezing raises, lowering starting salaries for new recruits and cutting some pension benefits.
