HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Huntington Mayor Steve Williams has enacted a hiring freeze and stopped unnecessary spending for the remaining five months of the fiscal year.

Williams said at a City Council work session Thursday that Huntington's revenues and expenditures are normal, but the state's second-largest city has less than $100,000 in contingency funds.

The move means vacated positions won't be filled and Huntington won't undertake new major projects until July 1.

After Williams was inaugurated in January 2013, he cut each city department's budget by 2 percent.
