The concessions fall short, however, of the $102 million Bing had hoped to achieve. City Council President Charles Pugh said that means deeper cuts elsewhere.

“We’re going to come up with a bold plan that’s bolder than what the mayor has on the table. And that’s no disrespect against the mayor but this is our city,” said Pugh.

Pugh said the next step is a meeting with the mayor. Read more, here.
