--Detroit Mayor Dave Bing

Bing is trying to find as many savings as possible while dealing with a budget deficit of more than $300 million.

Bing announced last week that Detroit will close nearly half of its parks and reduce maintenance and other services at dozens of others.

A review team is expected this month to report the city's fiscal condition to Gov. Rick Snyder, who could appoint an emergency manager if a financial emergency is found.

Bing has already decreased spending, cut jobs and instituted unpaid furlough days.
