TORONTO - Mayor Rob Ford is going into Wednesday's city council meeting with proposals to save more than $60 million in the 2014 budget.

The Toronto Sun got a sneak peak Tuesday of Ford's budget saving playbook in his bid to try to limit the property tax hike to 1.75%--that includes a 1.25% property tax increase along with a 0.5% hike to start to fund the Scarborough subway.

Ford has drafted around 25 motions and will be laying them out on the floor of council after refusing to show them to the executive committee last week.

While Ford has made it clear he expects councillors to reject his proposed cuts, he's planning for a fight on the council floor.

Sources said Ford will be asking council to direct staff to find private sponsorship to cover $19 million in Pan Am Games celebrations, start charging a minimal fee for the city's Welcome Policy to raise $2.5 million, to ask the province to allow the city to tack on unpaid library fines to property tax bills, to cut city council's $3.1-million general expense budget and to use $3.5 million garnered from tax assessment growth to drive down the property tax levy.
