LANSING (WKZO) -- Officials with the City of Detroit and the State of Michigan squared off Wednesday morning over the issue of the appointment of an Emergency Financial Manager to run the city.

The hearing in Lansing in front of Michigan Chief Deputy Treasurer Mary MacDowell began with the state outlining the fiscal crisis the city is facing and the lack of progress made in addressing the problem.  City officials countered the claims saying that nearly all requirements of the consent agreement have been resolved and that more time is needed to implement the recovery plan.

MacDowell will deliver the comments to Governor Rick Snyder, who will make the final determination on the appointment of an Emergency Manager.
