Emergency manager to meet with creditors

DETROIT — Detroit’s state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr plans to meet with many of the city’s creditors as he works to avoid bankruptcy protection.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report the meeting is scheduled for next Friday.

Orr is seeking significant concessions for the city, which has a budget deficit that could reach $380 million by July 1 and long-term debt estimated at $14 billion.

Orr spokesman Bill Nowling declined to release details about the proposals, but told the Free Press “it will be a tough pill to swallow” for creditors.

Republican Gov. Rick Snyder appointed Orr in March. He has final say on Detroit’s fiscal matters.
