(WMC-TV) - A group of Memphis city leaders are preparing to temporarily take over Beale Street.

The historic district is in search of management after the former manager, Performa Entertainment, filed for bankruptcy earlier in 2013.

Performa Entertainment has agreed to hand its sublease off to the city.

City Attorney Herman Morris said once the city settles with Performa, a group of city directors will step in and manage the district.

The group of city directors will manage until Mayor AC Wharton selects interim managers and a permanent manager.
