LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Withh the deadline just days away, the Lansing City Council met again Friday to discuss the city's budget.
The city council reviewed the mayor's budget and sending it back to his office with some changes of their own. Council had a chance to introduce some amendments to the mayor's budget. They've proposed a few additional cuts, but the big issue continues to be the Board of Water & Light fees, which the mayor's office hopes will close the $5.5 million deficit facing the city.
Council's amendment, if accepted by the mayor, would increase the amount BWL pays to the city from it's equity by 0.5 percent, which would raise an additional $1.7 million. BWL may or may not charge their own additional fee for customers to pay for the increase. Council also wants to differ raising fire hydrant fees to the voters.
The mayor's proposed fees would raise about $1.5 million. Council voted seven to one to put hydrant fees on a ballot.
"I trust the voice of Lansing. I think the best way to do that would be through a ballot initiative. I trust and believe the voters can speak and tell us what dictates their pocketbook," said A'lynne Boles Robinson, the vice president of Lansing City Council.
Joe Khalil will have more on what city council members have to say about the budget coming up on 6 News at 5.
