For a third time, members of the Galesburg City Council voted down a gas use tax.  At last week's work session, a majority of the council favored levying the tax, but Monday night, the council voted down the tax by a 4-3 vote.  That means that the city council would have to approve a budget for the next fiscal year that will include over $600,000 in cuts.  One of the cuts would be a captain's position with the Galeburg Fire Department.  Alderman voted to cut $95,000 for vehicle replacement and a $100,000 reduction in the city's contingency fund allotman.  Several other cuts were also approved.  Council approved the budget by a 6-1 vote.
