Emergency Manager Darnell Earley will move forward with a controversial two-year budget for the City of Flint. The budget, which includes cuts to 36 positions in the police department and 19 in the fir department, is aimed at reducing the city’s nearly $13 million deficit.

According to WNEM, in addressing the city council which did not approve of the budget, Earley said “we just simply don’t have the funds to go forward carrying those positions in public safety” and he is “waiting for the results of the study to determine what the need is.”

The budget also includes a hike to water rates. It goes into effect July 1.
