BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) – The city council is set to meet with Mayor William Bell's staff to try and hammer out a budget compromise.
Mayor Bell wants to cut salaries 4% and cut holiday pay. However, city councilors want to use furlough days and city reserve funds.
They have to come up with a compromise fast; the new budget takes effect July first.
Today's meeting comes just days after ten city employees were let go as part of Mayor Bell's cost-cutting plan.
