The planned renovation of the Manoogian Mansion is getting some new funding.
The City Council on Thursday is expected to consider whether to accept new carpets, lamps, window treatments and cabinets for the official home of the mayor. The renovation is being funded by companies such as Masco and DTE. A spokeswoman for the mayor said she doesn’t know the total cost of the donated items — but says Mayor Bing and his wife have no plans to move into the residence.
Kwame Kilpatrick was the last mayor to live in the house that has since become synonymous with scandal for that alleged wild party in 2002.
