E-M:/ Chopping down trees in Flint

I just heard a very brief story on Michigan Public Radio this afternoon
that the powers that be in Flint are considering a wacky proposal to chop
down trees on city land and sell them for wood to help pay down the City's
deficit!  It apparently will raise $300,000, a drop in the bucket compared
to the apparent $6 million deficit.

Is this true?  Does anyone have any more details?  ...Talk about a
wrong-headed, short-sighted solution to a problem.
