Flint’s emergency manager will unveil the city’s budget plan for next year later today.

Elected officials in most Michigan cities have spent the past month or so holding public meetings to discuss and get public feedback on their spending plans for next year.

But in Flint, the emergency manager has sidelined the mayor and city council

So the budget has been drafted behind closed doors.

The plan will be made public late this afternoon, after state officials have had a look and possibly made some changes.

Flint’s emergency manager and his staff have been working on balancing the city’s budget, while trying to come up with ways of eliminating the city’s $19 million general fund deficit.

We may find out later today if that will mean more city employee layoffs or service cutbacks.
