State-appointed Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, left, and Mayor Mike Duggan are seen during a news conference in Detroit, Tuesday, May 27, 2014. Removing blighted residential properties, lots and vacant commercial structures that have plagued Detroit neighborhoods for decades would cost $850 million, a task force said Tuesday. Blight has "gone on for years" without a "real strategy" and has gotten worse as a result, said Duggan. Orr called it an unprecedented effort. For the first time in Detroit's history, there is a "comprehensive proposal to analyze all the properties in 144 square miles in the city," Orr said. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)

The city of Detroit has reached a deal with retired police officers and firefighters that would preserve current pensions but trim annual cost-of-living payments — the first major agreement with retirees in the bankruptcy case, mediators announced Tuesday, April 15, 2014.

Rick Snyder, address reporters during a news conference in Detroit after Orr asked a federal judge for bankruptcy protection. Orr chose bankruptcy over diverting money from police, fire and other services to make debt payments. The move conserves cash so the city can operate, but it will hurt Detroit's image for years. It will also leave creditors with much less than they are owed and places in jeopardy the pension benefits of thousands of city retirees. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio, File)
