DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Detroit City Council has scheduled a special session for 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 4.
This could be viewed as an emergency meeting, as council is currently on recess and had not been scheduled to meet again as a whole until December 11.
Sources are telling 7 Action News that the meeting has been called to address the city's current financial problems.
Detroit is projected to have a cash shortfall this month, leading some to believe that they will not be able to make payroll.
Among the items to be addressed at the meeting are council's concerns that Mayor Bing is waiting until January to enact furloughs. Council is also concerned that he is waiting until February to issue layoff notices.
It is unclear at this point if the controversial Miller Canfield contract will be discussed. Council has not approved a contract with the law firm over their concerns about the role the law firm played in drafting the consent agreement.
A contact with Miller Canfield was part of the agreement that brought financial aid to the city from the state of Michigan.
