Joyce Parker Named Emergency Manager For Allen Park

Allen Park will have an emergency financial manager overseeing the cash-strapped city's finances as early as Monday after the Local Emergency Financial Loan Assistance Board on Thursday appointed Joyce Parker to the post.

Parker, who was appointed emergency financial manager for the City of Ecorse in 2009 and the Highland Park school district earlier this year, will continue her role with Ecorse as she takes over Allen Park, but she will no longer serve over the Highland Park district. Donald Weatherspoon, the emergency financial manager for the Muskegon Heights Public Schools district, will assume that role and keep his post with Muskegon Heights.
