(DETROIT) -- The Detroit City Council will vote Friday morning on a budget proposal to cut about $5 million from the budget proposed last month by Mayor Dave Bing.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the city's emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, has the power to set a budget without the approval of the mayor or the council. Orr has insisted, however, that the two parties work towards a budget agreement before he passes judgement.
Bing's proposal would set the budget at $1.1 billion, making the $5 million cuts small in comparison to the city's $380 million budget deficit, says the Free Press.
Bing must accept the council's counter to his proposal, either completely or in part. The council would then have until June 3 to attempt to override any aspect of the budget that Bing vetoes.
