East Lansing Budget Described as Grim

By  | 

Grim -- that's how the East Lansing city manager describes the budget situation there.

The city is looking at a $1.5 million dollar deficit for next year.

The city manager is already talking about program cuts.

Some possibilities include scaling back library funds and perhaps program hours at the Hanna Community Center.

There are no planned layoffs, however, not filling vacant posts within the police department is a likelihood.
