DETROIT (AP) - The new Wayne County executive has announced a 5 percent salary reduction for appointees in a plan to cut $1.2 million in costs.

The Detroit Free Press reports the announcement came Monday from the office of Warren Evans.

Evans also announced that he would have nine fewer appointees than former Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano, who lost a bid for re-election last year.

Evans also announced the beginnings of the county executive’s new team, which so far only includes one returning Ficano appointee. He tells The Detroit News that he’s prepared to face underfunded pensions, a county deficit and a stalled jail project.

Evans says his focus is on the county’s success.
