This 10% wage cut is not really a 10% savings. The plan achieves the supposed 10% cut by forcing furlough days of 10%. So the city does not get the same amount of work for 10% less. They get at least 10% less work for 10% less pay. If they did not need those hours of work, then they don't need as many employees. The city is not required to keep so many employees. If they are not needed, lay off 10% and save on the benefits those workers have as well.
Bing only pretends to be moving forward. The logic he displays in this crisis explains why his business failed too.

Don't stress over it if you don't live there....

If living there means sleeping there, I don't.
If living there also means spending time there, I'm trapped into taking care of "bidness" at the court.
