DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr may be considering using capitol improvement project funds from the Department and Water and Sewerage to pay off pensions and other debts.

During a deposition Monday, Orr said he and his team have looked at several options related to using the department funds.  Orr also said there may be a limit on how money set aside for infrastructure improvements can be spent and he's not sure if he would have access to the funds if the water department goes under the control of a regional authority.

The deposition was filed this week in U.S. Bankruptcy court ahead a hearing for creditors to make their case to Judge Steven Rhodes that Detroit is ineligible to file for Chapter 9 because the city did not negotiate with them in good faith.
