DETROIT (AP) - Michigan Treasurer Andy Dillon says he'll probably order a review of Detroit's municipal finances, a 30-day process that could lead to a state takeover of its largest city.
Detroit is deep in debt and has a budget deficit of more than $200 million.
Dillon was in Detroit Wednesday to meet with aides to Mayor Dave Bing and with City Council members about Detroit's worsening financial condition and its "long-term viability."
Treasury spokesman Randy Stanton says Dillon hasn't yet scheduled a review under Michigan's emergency financial manager law but "has indicated that one would likely begin next week."
A consent agreement between Detroit and the state last year let Detroit avoid the appointment of an emergency manager, but Bing and the council have failed to agree on key money-saving measures.
