FIRCREST, Wa. Fircrest, a tight-knit, law-and-order community, might lose a police officer to balance the city’s 2008 budget.

City Manager Bill Brandon said the city has nine police officer positions, but one isn’t currently filled. Citing declining tax revenues, he proposes to drop the unfilled position to save up to $90,000 to help balance next year’s budget.
