Heres the Michigan bill being kicked around

Published:

Want to find out if an elected offical can be fired or not?

Looks to me like the governor wants fiscal responsibility all the way down the line. Gives local gov'ts and school districts time to get their budgets in line. Otherwise an emergency financial manager will be installed.

I reckon it is part of the job of a governor to see that his state is run on a sound financial basis at all levels.

I think it was on page 31 line 8, 9, 10 wether an emergency manager can not fire an elected offical.
Page 34 talks about consolidating municipal gov'ts into one. They will obviously loose elected officals in one of the two being consolidated.
Talks about school districts in there also and I did not see where an elected school offical can be fired by the emergency financial officer.
Correct me if I am wrong about any of the above.

JAP69, you are right on! I read an article about this bill earlier today. From that article it looked as if the State is preparing for the stupidity of their local special districts. If the officials within these special districts do not have the intelligence to create and maintain a viable budget, the State can take over by appointing a czar ( they called it a "manager") with powers to restore the budget to something workable. This would include firing elected officials, voiding contracts, reducing the workforce, or whatever this "manager" thought was necessary to restore the district to sanity.

I would much rather read the bill for myself.
