City Of Jackson Planning To Cut Jobs

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MI (WLNS) - It looks like the city of Jackson plans to cut some jobs to better the city's deficit.

Jackson City Council met Tuesday to amend their spending plan for the coming fiscal year.

The original budget plan included cutting city police officers and firefighters. The amendment, which was finalized Tuesday, lets the city keep their men on the ground and eliminates at least three administrative jobs.

Mayor Jason Smith says he is proud of the city's negotiating team for coming together to fix the problem.

“We made all the changes we needed to make. It really came together quickly which was nice. It's good to see that there really wasn't a lot of fighting going on and we all understood what it was gonna take to make the necessary concessions to keep the city moving forward,” said Jason Smith, Mayor, city of Jackson.

The city plans to get rid of two administrative jobs within the police department, including a secretary position, as well as one office job within the police department.
