Flint city council narrowly passes city budget, avoids government shutdown
A divided Flint city council finally passed a budget for the 2022 fiscal year early Tuesday morning after more than 10 hours of debate.
The 5-4 vote means the city of Flint will avoid a government shutdown.
The council had already missed a city charter-mandated deadline to pass a budget last week.
The resolution came after the council voted unanimously to accept nearly $95 million in COVID relief money from the federal government.
