Flint May Receive $1.1 Million for Public Safety From the State Budget
There is no secret when it comes to the City of Flint's financial problems but things are turning around. Flint may receive $1.1 million for public safety from the state budget. Keep your fingers crossed because we need the money.
The House of Representatives and the Senate has approved for money to be set aside for our police and fire fighters to stay on board. The extra funds will save the proposed cuts to public safety. Governor Rick Synder will have the paperwork on his desk by the end of the week to give the final approval.
The Emergency Manager Early would like to send a bulk of the $1.1 million to sustain jobs until a findings from research conducted by a consultant arrives in October.
I am excited that the necessary help could be coming to our beloved city. No one wants to see people lose their job due to no funds.
