The City's budget includes a Fiscal Management Plan, which provides a roadmap in the case the City falls into financial hardship again. As all other cities, the City of Eastpointe fell into financial hardship after the 2008 financial/housing crisis. SMORSA was officially on the ballot, but we did not know if it was going to pass or not. We updated the plan in the case that SMORSA did not pass. We wanted to be prepared for the worst case scenario.
