Cautious Optimism In Lansing About Need For Financial Manager In Detroit

LANSING (WWJ) – The governor-appointed review team is asking how Detroit’s finances got so bad without their knowledge … that’s on the heels of its first meeting in Lansing Tuesday.

But, WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick says there is optimism among the group that the city won’t need an emergency manager.

Skubick says that this review team might not be needed and would actually close down its work if the Detroit Mayor, the city council and the unions get together with a deficit reduction plan.

State Treasurer Andy Dillon says if that happens the review won’t be needed and he’s somewhat optimistic that the mayor is having some success with the unions on that front.

The group is expected to make a decision within 60 days.
