DETROIT (AP) - Bankruptcy attorney and turnaround specialist Kevyn Orr is expected to arrive at Detroit City Hall for his first day on the job as emergency manager.
Orr has said he expects to sit down with Mayor Dave Bing Monday and meet with some City Council members.
He was appointed earlier this month by Gov. Rick Snyder and takes over the finances of the largest city in the country to come under state oversight.
Orr also plans to look at the city's financial data to help develop his plan of action in tackling Detroit's fiscal crisis. The city has a $327 million budget deficit and more than $14 billion in debt.
Some, including a group led by prominent Detroit pastors, have said they will protest Orr's appointment and Michigan's emergency manager law.
