Superior Court Judge Julio Mendez ruled Wednesday that the state overseers will be able to cut the city’s Fire Department by 15 members as a cost-saving measure. The cuts are not allowed to be made before Feb. 1, according to the court ruling. "Upon careful consideration of the facts and legal arguments, the court is of the view that the plan and timeline for immediate reductions is problematic but it’s not impermissible by the Recovery Act," according to the 13-page ruling. "The court will not restrict the Designee from establishing a plan to reduce the size of the ACFD from the current level to 195 to 180."
