Detroit, MI Demolition Contracts Subject to Council Vote
The City Council will begin voting next week on existing city-funded demolition contracts worth over $25,000.
Mayor Mike Duggan’s administration discovered the existing contracts have never sought required City Council approval during a review of purchasing ordinances. Going forward, officials have committed to a council vote on all contracts valued over $25,000, as required by law.
The city is still investigating the number of contracts performed without proper council approval since Duggan revamped the demolition program in 2014.
