Governor Snyder appoints state review team for Hamtramck
Hamtramck could be the next Michigan city to get an emergency manager.
Governor Snyder appointed a state review team to examine the city’s finances Wednesday.
Hamtramck city officials actually asked for the state review. The tiny enclave within Detroit has struggled financially for many years.
A preliminary review found that unfunded pension and other post-retirement benefits are “significant obstacles to Hamtramck’s long-term fiscal health.”
The review team is expected to verify that a financial emergency does exist within 60 days—at which point the Governor will make a decision about emergency management.
