MODESTO, Calif. — Budget cuts the Modesto City Council approved Tuesday night will slice services most residents take for granted.

Police, fire and parks staffing will diminish through attrition to shore up Modesto's budget with $8.6 million in cuts to city departments. The Police Department will lose 25 officers and nine civilian posts, drawing down its sworn ranks to about 260.
