According to The San Bernardino Sun, that money would come from the city's restricted funds. The city filed for bankruptcy Aug. 1 and is trying to bridge a $45.8 million budget deficit.
During the City Council meeting on Wednesday, officials released a new budget proposal, which would reduce salaries, cut more than 100 jobs and eliminate some city services.
City Manager Andrea Travis-Miller says the city's deficit grows by $125,000 every day without a plan in place.
Meantime, there is an effort under way to recall the mayor and council members.
