City And Suburbs Reach Detroit Water Management Deal

DETROIT (WWJ) The city and suburbs have reached a deal on how Detroit’s Water and Sewerage Department will be managed.

Mayor Dave Bing and representatives from Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties have announced that a new seven-member board will oversee operations.

The mayor will have four appointees. One will be appointed by each county. Current county representatives are appointed by the mayor.

Bing says the city will maintain ownership of the system. A federal court’s oversight would end within six months under the deal.
