DETROIT (WXYZ) - UPDATE: In a brief meeting Thursday morning, Detroit City Council voted to approve the Mayor's amendment to the budget.
Detroit City Council voted quickly 7-2 in favor of the amended proposal they receiveed from Mayor Dave Bing Thursday morning.
The approved plan restores $25 million to the budget the mayor had previously asked for $30 million.
After the vote was announced, Mayor Bing entered council chambers to a round of applause.
On Wednesday, the majority of council members who rejected previous amendments by Bing, urged the mayor to present them with more options.
They gathered to let the mayor know that they were willing to play ball and the game was not yet over.
Council said both parties were willing to compromise.
Detroit City Council previously voted seven to two to reject the amendments that the Mayor was pushing for. Bing wanted council to restore $30 million in cuts, including $10-million in state revenue sharing and $20-million from the city's escrow account with DTE.
Following the rejection of his budget amendments Tuesday Mayor Bing pointed the blame at Council for drastic cuts he said he would have to make. He blasted Council by saying, “It’s kind of hard for me to trust what they say.”
Bing said Monday evening he was told by members of Council the amendments would pass.
