LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Review teams have found financial emergencies in two more Michigan communities.

The state treasurer's office says Governor Rick Snyder has 10 days to make a decision on the financial conditions of Royal Oak Township in Oakland County and Highland Park, near Detroit.

The reviews are part of a process that could lead to the appointment of emergency managers.

Royal Oak Township's funds decreased by nearly $500,000 from the end of 2011 to the end of 2012. Highland Park owes about $19 million to vendors, including $18 million to Detroit for water and sewer services.

State-appointed emergency managers are in charge in Detroit, Allen Park, Benton Harbor, Flint, Hamtramck, Pontiac and several school districts.
