DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Mayor Dave Bing has announced 10 initiatives designed to save or bring in about $50 million to the struggling city.
The revenue enhancements were detailed Wednesday at City Hall and include $14 million in parking judgments and other delinquent collections. Another $13 million would come from income tax collections and improvements to tax processing systems.
The $50 million in savings would be added to $10 million expected to be saved from several hundred planned layoffs and unpaid furlough days.
Bing initiatives were unveiled a day after the state Treasurer's office said a review team had been selected to pore over Detroit's finances. That process could lead to a state-appointed emergency financial manager.
Detroit faces a deficit of at least $200 million and has been struggling to maintain cash flow.
