Yet another Mich city faces imposition of a Gov-appointed chancellor …errr .. Emergency Manager


Next up: Inkster:

State officials are reviewing the finances of the city of Inkster — the first step on a path that could lead to appointment of an emergency manager.

The 30-day review under the state’s toughened emergency manager law for local governments and school districts began last week, said Terry Stanton, a spokesman for the Treasury Department.


Inkster recently submitted a deficit reduction plan to the state. Interim city manager Ron Wolkowicz could not immediately be reached for comment Monday morning.

Earlier this year, the state ordered preliminary reviews of the finances of Highland Park Schools and the city of Flint. In both cases, the preliminary review has been completed and the process has moved on to the next step, a more detailed financial review by a team appointed by Snyder.

Disenfranchisement and dictatorial control of your local government, coming soon to a Michigan city near you thanks to Governor Rick Snyder and the Republican legislature.
