Snyder could appoint an emer-
gency manager. Bing would
have 10 days to appeal.
"I think the review team -
maybe on the 11th or so - will
go back to the governor with
a recommendation," Bing told
reporters Tuesday afternoon
at City Hall. "With that recom-
mendation it will be incumbent
upon the governor to make a
decision as to whether or not to
bring somebody else in or to let
us keep going forward.
"Our goal is to keep going
forward. I've said from the
very beginning, we didn't
want an emergency man-
Detroit has struggled with
its cash flow for more than a
year and has a budget deficit
of about $327 million.
The review 'team is the
second appointed by Snyder
to pore over Detroit's books.
A year ago, the first team
stopped short of declaring a
financial emergency, which
would have provided the
governor with the impetus
to appoint a manager.
Instead, Snyder and Bing
worked out a consent agree-
ment last spring that would
keep him on as mayor while
providing some state support
for Detroit's restructuring.
The deal came without
any direct state funding.
