LINCOLN PARK, Mich. (WJBK) - LINCOLN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder has appointed an emergency manager to run Lincoln Park, where officials say the deficit increased by at least $1 million in the last budget year.
 
The governor on Thursday named Brad Coulter the emergency manager. He's taking a leave of absence from O'Keefe & Associates, a turnaround consulting firm where he is an independent contractor.
 
Coulter will make $150,000 a year.
 
Lincoln Park is the fifth Michigan city currently with a state-appointed emergency manager. It joins Detroit, Flint, Allen Park and Hamtramck.
 
When Snyder confirmed a financial emergency in Lincoln Park, the city council initially chose a consent agreement with the state. But council members rejected the agreement, leading state Treasurer Kevin Clinton to determine the city should proceed under an emergency manager.
