The $235 million preliminary budget would produce a 9.9 percent tax increase, but that exceeds the state’s new limit on such hikes. State law allows no more than a 3.5 percent increase. So the city must make another $8.5 million in budget adjustments before adopting the spending plan.

One way city officials are considering trimming the budget is imposing additional layoffs of municipal workers.
