DETROIT (WKZO) -- An agreement outlining the duties of Detroit Mayor-elect Mike Duggan was unveiled Thursday by Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr.

The plan calls for Orr to maintain the management and responsibility of all city finances with matters involving the day to day operations of the city being reported to Duggan.  The newly formed Blight Authority will report to Duggan while the Plan of Adjustment to guide Detroit out of bankruptcy and commitments made to the federal government will be Orr's responsibility.

Orr said the agreement is designed to "create a strong, vibrant and solvent city."
