No Layoffs in New City Budget

Ypsilanti, MI – The proposed budget for the city of Ypsilanti for the 2007-2008 fiscal year does not include any workforce reductions or cuts in services.
City Manager Ed Koryzno outlined the 15-million dollar budget for city council Tuesday night. It includes just over two-and-a-half percent more in expenses than last fiscal year, but also includes higher revenue from things like the sale of some city properties.
In the long term, the city still faces uncertainty in state revenue sharing and the scheduled closing of the Automotive Holdings plant in 2008.
