    San Diego is facing a budget gap of more than $70 million for next fiscal year. San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders is asking all departments to see where they can cut. Residents could see a combined $30 million in additional reductions to public safety, libraries and parks under this latest round of proposed cuts.

    As city services face the reality of major cuts, the paper reported police have been asked to cut the most - more than $15 million. Fire and rescue will have to cut $7.2 million from its budget.

    Sanders and the majority of the council are pushing for increased revenue through Prop D.
