Detroit Mayor Dave Bing returns to office Monday after health issues

68-year-old had undergone surgery for perforated intestine


DETROIT – Detroit Mayor Dave Bing is back City Hall following his recovery from surgery.

The 68-year-old Bing returned to the office on Monday morning as expected.

Bing had surgery for a perforated intestine in late March and then returned to the hospital on April 4 because of blood clots in his lungs.

Bing's health problems occurred while the city and the state of Michigan were working on a deal to fix Detroit's finances.

The pact calls for a chief financial officer, a program manager and a nine-member board to oversee spending.
