ALAMEDA, Calif. — Combining the jobs of police and fire chief into a single "director of public safety" could be among the proposals that emerge when a consultant brought in by the city offers ways to cut costs and streamline operations in the two departments.

The report from the International City/County Management Association could be available as early as next month. The City Council is expected to use the consultant's recommendations as it works to adopt a budget by the end of June for the upcoming fiscal year.
