DETROIT (WKZO) -- The city of Detroit is challenging a consent agreement with the state in court. A complaint challenging the legality of the agreement has been filed in a Lansing area court.
According to a city spokesperson, city attorney Krystal Crittendon mailed the complaint to Ingham Circuit Court on Friday. The decision to challenge the agreement halts the appointments of two-members of a nine-member Financial Advisory Board, by the City Council, that will oversee the city's financial reorganization.
The consent agreement between the city and state was approved in April as part of an effort to bring the city's financial problems under control.
