Watch Mayor Bing's budget address to city council
Detroit Mayor David Bing is delivering his budget address to city council right now.
Bing says the budget he is presenting is a five year plan to eliminate the city's budget deficit.
He says the most important conversation the city has to have is with union employees about pensions and health care benefits.
By 2020, Bing says fringe benefits and pensions would consume half the city's general fund.
