Bossier City plans to spend $18 million less on construction projects this year to save money because of ongoing fiscal problems.

The Times of Shreveport reports that means citizens might not have as many new parks and other projects to look forward to in the near term.

Mayor Lorenz "Lo" Walker's proposed list of items for the city to build or purchase this year comes to about $33 million, much less than the $52 million in funding approved last year.

By law, the city council must approve its capital budget within 60 days of the start of the new year.
