FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Flint Mayor Karen Weaver vetoed the city council's proposed budget Tuesday night.

The veto comes after the city's chief financial officer expressed concern with the budget.

Weaver issued the following statement:

This is a crucial time for the City of Flint, this is the first budget we are responsible for since regaining control.  I am proud of the budget that I submitted and I have full faith in the City’s Chief Financial Officer.  Just as I have the right to veto the budget, the City Council has the right to override that veto.  It is my hope that they would strongly consider my reasons for vetoing and that the Council and I can work together to create a budget that can sustain the City for years to come.
