Thursday evening Detroit City Council in a closed session voted on the fate of Kevyn Orr staying on as Detroit’s Emergency manager.
According to reports the final decision on the transfer agreement was that the day-to-day operations would shift from Orr to the mayor and city council. He will stay on as emergency manager until the end of bankruptcy.
“It’s timely,” Orr said. “And it gives me the authority to shepherd the bankruptcy process to a stable and hopefully, successful end.”
Orr was appointed by Governor Rick Snyder in March of 2013, and by state law, his term could end after 18 months if local elected officials voted him out.
