The City of Galveston might be forced to freeze spending. City Manager Steve LeBlanc says so far this year revenues are down 29 percent from last year and the city is 20 percent below budget. Galveston may have to slow down on hiring new employees or put a hold on certain projects.

LeBlanc says he doesn't think there will be any layoffs.
