DETROIT (AP) - As Detroit starts the bankruptcy process, residents, businesses owners and retirees nervously wonder if they'll see improvements after years of neglect.
Gov. Rick Snyder and Detroit emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, promised weary residents on Friday that they would see better city services in 30 to 60 days.
Orr says thrusting Detroit into bankruptcy means better days ahead.
But resident Kirk Mayes suggests that unless Detroit receives services on par with its suburban neighbors, Orr should "sell" his promises "to somebody else."
