DETROIT (AP) - The first State of the City address for Detroit since the city declared and was allowed into bankruptcy will be delivered by Mayor Mike Duggan.
Attendance is by invitation only for the annual speech, which takes places Wednesday evening in the Erma Henderson Auditorium in City Hall.
It comes less than a week after state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr filed his plan of adjustment to pay creditors while providing money for city services and improvements in the coming years.
Duggan is a former Detroit Medical Center chief. He was elected mayor in November.
Under the state's emergency manager law, Orr controls Detroit's finances. Duggan is in charge of financial matters relating to day-to-day functions of city government, blight removal and some other city operations.
