Benton Harbor Emergency Manager strives for transparency with meeting

BENTON HARBOR (WKZO) -- Benton Harbor emergency financial manager Joseph Harris says he'll hold a press conference next week to discuss the city's finances and other recent hot-button issues on the city.

Harris says he and his staff are trying to be more transparent after being routinely criticized by the city commission and others for not giving them information.  The Emergency Manager says an audit of city finances done last year will be discussed at next week's press conference.

The state Treasury Department has not confirmed statements by city commissioners recently that Harris will be replaced by the end of January, and the emergency manager said last month he would not resign.
