Witkowski Hopeful With Role On Benton Harbor Transition Team

The transition team is in place for Benton Harbor to move back to local control after four years under a state-appointed emergency manager. Berrien County Treasurer Bret Witkowski is serving on that board and wants to keep the momentum going.


Witkowski says the transition team will be in close contact with City Manager Darwin Watson and everyone else at Benton Harbor City Hall.


Former emergency manager Tony Saunders presented a pair of budgets to Governor Snyder's office last week for the next two fiscal years, showing the city roughly $2 million in the black for those years. When Saunders took over from emergency manager Joe Harris, the city had less than $4,000 and was continuing to bleed cash.
