JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Jackson’s City Council has approved a budget that includes furloughs for most city employees.

WAPT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1KaZNxH ) that the vote Thursday was 5-2 in favor of the $381.6 million budget.

The revised budget from Mayor Tony Yarber also included departmental cuts, a spending moratorium and hiring freezes, which he said were necessary to make up a $15 million deficit. There will be no tax increases.
