Flint's emergency manager Mike Brown passed the new budget for Flint almost a week ago, but last night Flint residents finally got the chance to talk about it . . . and it wasn't pretty.

Mike Brown called the budget, "the first steps towards stability and restoring financial solvency."  The people that packed city hall had a few other choice words for the new budget though.

The biggest complaints involved increased water-and-sewer fees and the reduction in the number of police officers in the city.  Others complained about a lack of democracy, pointing out that they did not vote Brown into office and that only after the budget passed were they allowed to comment.
