The Holyoke City Council has a lot more on its mind that a 45 thousand dollar payment the mayor made to the outgoing city solicitor. They are trying to figure out what they are going to do to cut the mayor's 125 million dollar budget which is about 4 million bucks out of whack. That could mean layoffs although everyone is trying to avoid that. So far they have cut about 100 thousand dollars -- a long way away from the 4 and a half million they need.
