LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Rick Snyder has declared financial emergencies in Highland Park and Royal Oak Township.  Thursday, Snyder agreed with two state financial review teams which found the communities have ongoing budget deficits and have not paid vendors on time.

While officials have seven days to request a hearing on the decision, Highland Park Mayor DeAndre Windom has already said the city will file an appeal with the state Department of Treasury.  Highland Park had been in financial emergency from 2001 to 2009, and has had three emergency managers.
