Flint’s Revised 2-Year Budget Invovles Public Safety Cuts and Fee Increases [Video]
Flint’s emergency manager, Darnell Earley revised the 2-year budget plan for the city, but it still involves plenty of public safety cuts and increases to water prices.
Flint residents and community leaders consider this revised budget a slap in the face, and say that Earley didn’t take their recommendations into consideration.
The cuts to public safety, and rising water fees are the main sticking points for most of the opposition. Earley says that the budget is “responsible” and will help Flint get out of it’s $13 Million deficit.
The total cuts to public safety would include 36 the police department and 19 in the fire department.
