A councilperson called this morning to ask if I knew about a public meeting at City Hall today at 4 p.m. with the state review team. This was said to have been published in The Detroit News this morning. I have not seen the newspaper and nothing has been posted online that I am aware of.
Entries will be updated. Let me know if I missed something.
