DETROIT (WWJ) — Detroit’s Historic bankruptcy is nearing an end. But there are many questions regarding the future of the city.

Closing arguments in Detroit’s historic bankruptcy case will likely come within the next couple of weeks. Judge Steven Rhodes, who is hearing arguments in the case, is seeking assurances that elected leaders will put one billion dollars into improving services — and will be able to successfully run Detroit post-bankruptcy.

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan testified in federal court Monday that the city has a feasible strategy with the resources it needs to successfully emerge from bankruptcy protection.

WWJ’s Charlie Langton and co-host Mark Lee from the Lee Group spoke about the future of Detroit with Former Detroit City Council Member Ken Cockrel, Karen Dumas — former Chief of Communications and External Affairs for Dave Bing — and Sandy Baruah, President of the Detroit Regional Chamber.
