Sec. 11. (1) An emergency manager shall develop and may amend a written financial and operating plan for the local government. The plan shall have the objectives of assuring that the local government is able to provide or cause to be provided governmental services essential to the public health, safety, and welfare and assuring the fiscal accountability of the local government. The financial and operating plan shall provide for all of the following:
(a) Conducting all aspects of the operations of the local government within the resources available according to the emergency manager's revenue estimate.
(b) The payment in full of the scheduled debt service requirements on all bonds, notes, and municipal securities of the local government, contract obligations in anticipation of which bonds, notes, and municipal securities are issued, and all other uncontested legal obligations.
(c) The modification, rejection, termination, and renegotiation of contracts pursuant to section 12. 1
(d) The timely deposit of required payments to the pension fund for the local government or in which the local government participates.
(e) For school districts, an educational plan.
(f) Any other actions considered necessary by the emergency manager in the emergency manager's discretion to achieve the objectives of the financial and operating plan, alleviate the financial emergency, and remove the local government from receivership.
(2) Within 45 days after the emergency manager's appointment, the emergency manager shall submit the financial and operating plan, and an educational plan if the local government is a school district, to the state treasurer, with a copy to the superintendent of public instruction if the local government is a school district, and to the chief administrative officer and governing body of the local government. The plan shall be regularly reexamined by the emergency manager and the state treasurer and may be modified from time to time by the emergency manager with notice to the state treasurer. If the emergency manager reduces his or her revenue estimates, the emergency manager shall modify the plan to conform to the revised revenue estimates.
(3) The financial and operating plan shall be in a form as provided by the state treasurer and shall contain that information for each year during which year the plan is in effect that the emergency manager, in consultation with the state financial authority, specifies. The financial and operating plan may serve as a deficit elimination plan otherwise required by law if so approved by the state financial authority.
(4) The emergency manager, within 30 days of submitting the financial and operating plan to the state financial authority, shall conduct a public informational meeting on the plan and any modifications to the plan. This subsection does not mean that the emergency manager must receive public approval before he or she implements the plan or any modification of the plan.
(5) For a local government in receivership immediately prior to the effective date of this act, 2 a financial and operating plan for that local government adopted under former 2011 PA 4 3 or a financial plan for that local government adopted under former 1990 PA 72 4 shall be effective and enforceable as a financial and operating plan for the local government under this act until modified or rescinded under this act.
