Flint Emergency Manager Says to Expect More Budget Cuts Next Year

courtesy City of Flint

Flint emergency financial manager Ed Kurtz warned of more budget cuts at a news conference on Wednesday.

According to MLive, property tax estimates forecast that the city will take in less revenue next year than it did this year, which means more staff cuts are likely.

Kurtz said the city is looking closely at what services they can afford to provide. Police and fire departments are likely to be spared from cuts due to the public safety millage that was passed by voters in November. However, the city is taking steps to outsource waste collection, which would affect 24 employees.

There are also discussions with state lawmakers and members of the business community about a possible income tax increase.

The news conference was held to discuss the results of the 2012 audit which showed that the city’s deficit had climbed to $19 million.
