Is the city hiding money?

No; the city is not hiding money just to cut ambulance. The city budget shows all available funds to be utilized to provide city services. There are no separate savings accounts or places to funnel money. The City only receives approximately $2.9 million in property taxes for the general fund which is not enough to cover the police department, fire department, finance and administration.
