Flint EM Gives City Council More Time on Budget Recommendations

Jason Cooper, WFNT

Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley is giving City Council more time to make recommendations before adopting the next fiscal year budget.

According to ABC 12, Earley made the comments during a press briefing on Thursday morning. Earley and staff have also taken some recommendations into account. Contributions were increased for economic development efforts, money was added to help assist with the transition of some senior centers to different management structure and the city invested in staff to help with the process of redoing business licensing.

What won’t be done however is the amount going toward paying off the deficit, about $1.8 million per year. If no other recommendations are made, the two-year budget will be finalized and go into effect in July.

Also at Thursday’s press briefing, Earley announced he’s finalized the sale of a nine-mile section of city owned pipeline to the Genesee County Drain Commissioner for $3.9 million. City Council had voted against the deal last month, but failed to come up with an alternative that produced as much or more revenue.
