|Things are so bad in Detroit that the city is actually shrinking in size|
The article continues about Detroit's longstanding fiscal woes: "Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder also acknowledged that anything was possible in terms of how to handle Detroit’s financial situation, even though dissolving the city would be a last resort. Last week, the Detroit City Council rejected a contract with the law firm Miller Canfield that would’ve allowed the firm to help handle the city’s financial recovery plan. The rejection was apart of an ongoing power struggle between the state, city council, and Detroit mayor Dave Bing, which could ultimately lead to Detroit becoming the largest American city to ever file for bankruptcy. Bing has already threatened city employees with temporary layoffs starting in January, as the city stands to be short by $30 million."
