The Man Who Ate Hamtramck's Government

How Louis Schimmel Downsized a Mighican City's Public Sector
March 01 2002 by ,

In November 2000 Louis Schimmel swept away the government of Hamtramck, Michigan, and literally took over the city–lock, stock, and barrel. Appointed by Governor John Engler under a 1990 law that allows the state to assume temporary control of a dysfunctional municipality, Schimmel has transformed the finances and the infrastructure of Hamtramck. The result speaks volumes about the virtues of things like common sense and privatization.
