Elkhart City Council’s Republican block on Monday night pushed through more cuts that will eliminate eight positions in city government.

Republicans called the cuts a permanent step toward fiscal stewardship while mayor Dick Moore called it a step backward in the city’s progress.

Among the positions that were defunded were the mayor’s executive assistant, two supervisors, a code enforcement officer and as well as deep cuts in personnel for the National New York Central Railroad Museum and the Tolson Center.

Also cut were wages for a police officer and firefighter. Those two positions were currently unfilled.
