San Bernardino votes to borrow from restricted funds to make payroll

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.

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.
