ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Detroit’s state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr is scheduled to lead a policy discussion at the University of Michigan on the future of urban governance in the city.

The program is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in the Michigan Union’s Rogel Ballroom in Ann Arbor.

It is sponsored by the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy and the Domestic Policy Corps.

Orr is a bankruptcy attorney and earned his law degree at the University of Michigan Law School. He was appointed in March 2013 to fix Detroit’s finances and filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy in July. In December, a federal judge allowed the city into the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.

Orr’s contract runs through September.
