Detroit City Council to Appeal Emergency Management Plan

Detroit City Council has voted to request a public hearing and appeal Gov. Rick Snyder’s plan to appoint an emergency financial manager for Detroit.

The resolution passed by council this afternoon says the city does indeed have a plan to fix the financial problems that have plagued the city for years. Council was awaiting any changes Bing may have wanted in the four-page resolution, but no response came from his office.

“We’re basically going to ask for that hearing,” Pugh said this afternoon.

    Hope they win. A municipal bankruptcy would sweep much cleaner than an emergency manager.
