Detroit Mayor Dave Bing says he doesn't support an effort by the City Council to appeal Gov. Rick Snyder's declaration that the city is in a financial emergency with no good plan to turn things around.
Bing said Wednesday afternoon that whether people like it or not "an emergency manager is coming to Detroit."
Detroit is facing a $327 million budget deficit.
Snyder agreed Friday with a review team's report on Detroit's financial emergency. He prescheduled a hearing date for Tuesday in case his decision was appealed.
The City Council voted 7-1 Wednesday afternoon to appeal that decision.
Bing says he "decided the fighting must stop now" and things must move forward to improve the lives of city residents.
