LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Lansing Mayor Andy Schor vetoed multiple budget items passed by the City Council.

Schor vetoed items that would restore budget cuts to the Executive Office and allocate $1.8 million that was allegedly included in the mayor’s budget but absent from the council’s budget.

“I introduced a responsible, balanced budget early this year. After several months of deliberation and debate, the City Council introduced and passed a substitute version of the budget. There were amendments made that I was not consulted on and I disagree with that cut the Mayor’s Office staff and budget, and I have vetoed those provisions,” said Schor in a letter.

“I support dollars for a warming center in Lansing, and am working with Sen. Anthony to secure those dollars from the state. I have every confidence in Sen. Sarah Anthony to get this done. In addition, after reviewing the council-passed budget, it was discovered that just over $1.8 million in funding was left unallocated. I have used my line-item veto power to restore funding into several departments that had operating budget lines cut. There is more work to do, and I look forward to working with City Council going forward to ensure that our employees can effectively serve the residents, visitors, and workers of the City of Lansing,” he continued.
