Rockford aldermen on Monday voted down a financial task force recommendation to slash what the city pays the Rockford Mass Transit District by 20 percent.

The vote was 9-5 against cutting $300,000 from the $1.5 million Rockford pays the RMTD. The citizen-led task force recommended the reduction as part of its effort to help city leaders close a projected $10.5 million spending hole.
