MELVINDALE, Mich. — The city of Melvindale might soon have one public safety director for its fire and police departments, as it did more than 30 years ago.

The move has yet to go to a vote, but it would save the city about $120,000 annually as it tries to close a $1.1 million deficit, officials said. The city would keep separate fire and police departments.
