Mayor Reviews Data Before Closing Fire Stations 1-18-2011

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling said he is analyzing statistics at three fire stations before putting the budget axe to two of them.
Walling said he is looking at closing stations 5, 3 and 8. The city is also in the process of demoting 20 firefighters in another cost-saving measure.
Walling said more than $500,000 of the city’s projected deficit comes from the fire department, according to published reports.
The City Council will review the proposals on Wednesday.
