Detroit mayor plans to cut 1,000 jobs amid budget crisis

DETROIT — Detroit Mayor Dave Bing says 1,000 job cuts are planned by early next year to help deal with the city's budget crisis.

The mayor's office said in a statement Friday that departments will identify their number of layoffs starting the week of Dec. 5 and layoff notices will be issued starting the week of Jan. 21.

He says the cuts represent 9 percent of the city's about 11,000 employees and will save about $12 million.

On Wednesday, Bing said the city faces a $45 million cash shortfall by the end of its fiscal year in June.
