TACOMA, Wash. —

The Tacoma City Council passed a $397 million budget Tuesday night that cuts 217 jobs.

The 2013-14 spending plan also closes a fire station at the port, cuts library hours and leaves non-essential street repairs unfixed. Drivers will have to pay $20 more for vehicle license tabs.

The News Tribune reports ( http://bit.ly/UFOVSJ) about 100 city workers will retire under the next budget, about 70 will be laid off, and about 50 vacant positions will vanish.
