DETROIT - On Monday, the Detroit City Council voted unanimously to override Mayor Bing's veto of amendments made to the 2013/2014 fiscal budget.
It was just last week that Bing vetoed nearly $1.6 million in budget cut to his office, $1.4 million to police operations, $694,000 to firefighters and $205,000 to emergency medical services.
Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr must now sign off on the budget.
The new budget will be the first while the city is under state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr's oversight.
Detroit's new fiscal year begins July 1.
The city's unemployment rate has fallen in recent years with a rebound in the auto industry, but at 18.3% it is still nearly triple where it stood at in 2000 and more than double the national rate.
