Inkster might be able to avoid emergency manager
It's looking like the city of Inkster might be able to avoid a state-appointed emergency manager as it works to improve its struggling finances.
A state review team Wednesday voted to accept a consent agreement with the southeastern Michigan city. It should be reflected in a recommendation the review team is expected to soon forward to Governor Rick Snyder regarding the city's financial situation.
A consent agreement would include conditions that city officials must meet, but local officials would remain in charge as long as the conditions are met.
Michigan officials began reviewing Inkster's finances late last year.
