Mayor Nutter said yesterday that he would delay until next week announcing his budget cuts because the city needs more time to fine-tune the plan.

"It is more important that we do this right and do this well," Nutter said. "We're looking at all of our programs, all of our services, all of our facilities and the potential impact, of course, on citizens and our employee workforce."

Nutter will now announce the cuts on Nov. 6 instead of Oct. 30.
