Downriver City No Longer Under an Emergency Manager

April 30, 2013

ECORSE, MI (My TV20 News at 10) --- Ecorse will not be run by an emergency manager much longer.

Governor Rick Snyder announced Tuesday the city is no longer in a financial emergency.

He's named a Transition Advisory Board to help return control back to the mayor and city council.

Ecorse had been under state control since 2009 because of a $14.6 million deficit.

Ecorse eliminated some of its financial problems when it merged court services with River Rouge and Lincoln Park, and implemented a police and fire special assessment.
