(SOUTH BEND) - South Bend Mayor Stephen Luecke says he will recommend laying off 45 firefighters and 19 police officers if city and county leaders don't pass a proposed income tax hike by the end of the month.

Luecke's administration proposes cutting more than 200 employees across all city departments next year to offset a loss in property tax revenue.

The south bend common council is expected Monday night to consider three resolutions that would increase local income taxes by .95 percent.
