Detroit Leaders Say Bills Will Be Paid

DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit Mayor Dave Bing says he didn't want the city to go bankrupt, but now that it's happened, the people of the city "have to make the best of it."
  
Emergency financial manager Kevyn Orr says it's business as usual in Detroit. He says the city will stay open and bills will be paid.
  
The comments came after Detroit became the biggest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy Thursday.
  
The filing put the city on an uncertain course that could mean laying off municipal employees, selling off assets, raising fees and scaling back basic services such as trash collection and snow plowing, which have already been slashed.
