BENTON HARBOR - The Benton Harbor City Commission approved a resolution Monday asking the Michigan Treasury Department to get directly involved with the city's fiscal crisis.

During a news conference earlier Monday, Emergency Financial Manager Joseph Harris presented several possible options to solve the crisis brought on when voters rejected two millage renewals worth a combined $1.4 million. The city could outsource its police services to Berrien County, put the millages on the ballot again, levy a special assessment or go bankrupt, Harris said. He said he would decide on a plan by the end of the week.

    Again, the same individuals who put BH in this position are now trying to get back into control. Going to the same state department that appointed Mr. Harris in the first place is a sure sign of incompetence of thos who claim to represent the citizens of BH.

    If the state has any sense, they'll send in more emergency managers and no more money until they weed out the people who are working to keep BH down.
