Detroit City Council
Detroit City Council members have voted to reject the state’s agreement to lease Belle Isle and proposed an alternative plan.
Will Belle Isle become another state park? The Detroit City Council will decide on Monday if a proposed lease agreement with the state will be approved.
For the first time in about 100 years, Detroiters will be electing city council members by district when they head to the polls next month.
“I’ve found the strength to move on with my life despite a deliberate effort to destroy me,” says ex-Detroit City Councilman Charles Pugh.
The appellate opinion says the law “would chill a substantial amount of First Amendment-protected activity.”
With Detroit filing for bankruptcy, what affect will it have on the ability to attract business… and keep council staffers?
Saunteel Jenkins said there are reports of items missing from a division Charles Pugh oversaw.
Saunteel Jenkins is the legislative body’s new president.
The shape of Detroit’s financial future and city leadership could be determined in the week ahead.
A decision on whether to dismiss Charles Pugh from the Detroit City Council won’t come until next week.
