TRENTON - Trenton Mayor Tony Mack says that he?s crunched the numbers and will remove the budget axe threatening the city?s police and fire departments.

For months, Mack said the city would lose dozens of first responders. Mack now credits labor union negotiations and potential grant money for coming up with $9 million.

Mack did not get into specifics, and said that the deals with the unions were not in writing yet but he was convinced that he could ween the city off a system that he says has never planned for economic trouble.
