- Detroit may avoid Emergency Manager by agreeing to a consent agreement
This morning, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder presented a consent agreement to Detroit city officials. This is basically his last offer before imposing an Emergency Manager on Michigan’s largest city.
Michigan Radio reporting news from the Associated Press:Councilman James Tate says the deal includes an advisory committee that would remove some power from elected officials. Tate says the consent agreement reads more like a “one-way edict.”
If approved, the deal could keep the state from appointing an emergency financial manager in Detroit, which faces a $197 million budget deficit.
