Mayor Says No More Cuts To Public Safety Cuts 4-05-2011

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling said no public safety cuts will be made when he presented his budget proposal fiscal year 2011-2012 at a special council meeting Monday night.
The plan does, however, assume public safety unions will be forced to take concessions under a controversial new state law that allows emergency financial managers to change collective bargaining agreements.
In all, the city’s general operating fund would be $49.5 million -- down about $7.6 million from last year.
The budget proposal also includes turning two of the city’s four golf courses into park land and includes eliminating the ombudsman's office and the civil service commission.
City council can make changes to the proposed budget. The budget must be adopted before July 1, the start of the new budget year.
Flint is facing a $17 million deficit.
