PONTIAC (WWJ) – Oakland County could soon pull the plug on the Detroit Institute of Arts millage money.

The County tells WDIV they don’t want the art sold to pay off Detroit’s creditors… and that’s why they have filed paperwork to explicitly let the city know their concerns.

Last year voters in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne approved the millage, provided that the funds go to the operation of the museum and not the city of Detroit.

The Oakland County Art Institute Board says if any money is taken from the funds given or any piece of art is sold, bartered or traded it violates the agreement.
