Deal reached on Duggan's role as Detroit mayor

City's finances still in Orr's hands

DETROIT — Detroit’s state-appointed emergency manager and new Mayor Mike Duggan are setting the ground rules for running the city after Duggan takes office next month.

Kevyn Orr’s office said today that Duggan will take on financial matters relating to day-to-day functions of city government, while Orr will continue overseeing the city’s finances, police department and a new federal grant management program.

Duggan will be in charge of blight removal and will appoint all non-civil service positions within his office, but Orr will have to approve them.

Mayor Dave Bing, who did not seek re-election, complained that communication with the emergency manager’s office deteriorated in the weeks after his Orr’s March hiring.
