Council member Dunbar on 2014 city budget


Yesterday the Lansing City Council continued discussions about one of the most challenging parts of next fiscal year’s budget--spending for city police services.  Mayor Virg Bernero’s proposed spending plan for the 2014 fiscal year includes a $700,000 cut to the police budget. 

Elsewhere, there was pressure to cut even more.  About a month ago, the administration’s Financial Health Team recommended a million dollars less for police.  At-large Lansing city councilwoman Kathie Dunbar reviews the budget and other business before the city.
