The Stockton City Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday night on whether to declare bankruptcy. The city faces a $26 million shortfall even after making $90 million in cuts, including cutting a quarter of the police and nearly a third of the fire department. What would a bankruptcy filing mean for the city?
