Wayne County Executive Warren Evans will deliver the annual State of the County Address at the Detroit Film Theatre.

The speech is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. on March 1. The Detroit Film Theatre is located inside the Detroit Institute of Arts in the city’s Midtown neighborhood.

Gov. Rick Snyder confirmed last summer that a financial emergency existed in the county. The county entered into a consent agreement with the state to fix its finances which included a projected $171 million structural deficit by 2019.

In December, the county announced that projections showed it had wiped out an accumulated deficit of more than $82 million.

Wayne County has 1.7 million residents and Detroit is its largest city.
