NEWS UPDATE: Tonight in a 5-2 vote City Council voted to have the administration contact the Office of Fiscal Responsibility with the State of Michigan. This is not the same as bringing in an emergency financial manager. The Office of Fiscal Responsibility will help the city come up with long-term solutions for their budget problems. City council will still make all decisions on any amendments to the budget.
The city has in excess of $3 million to cut from their budget.
