Bernero To Present City Budget Today

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero is expected to present his 2016 budget to the city council today.

Very few details have been released however there is a resolution on the city’s website which serves as a guide. On it, it calls for a short and long term financial stability plan and improving the city’s overall infrastructure.

Also up for a possible discussion are raises for the city council and mayor. The Compensation Commission recommended a 20 percent boost in pay. Those raises will go into effect unless the council votes to reject it by a two thirds vote.
