ECORSE (WKZO) -- The financial emergency status in the City of Ecorse has been lifted by Governor Rick Snyder.

The move came after Emergency Manager Joyce Parker told Snyder that problems in the city had been addressed.  She pointed to the elimination of nearly 20-million dollars in debt, the reorganization of the police and fire departments into a public safety department, and increased annual revenues of over two-million dollars.

Parker will be a part of the Transition Advisory Board that will help manage the city's finances beginning next month.
