More Detroit City Council Idiocy

It's not enough to the Detroit City Council that Detroit is so broke and has been so neglected by them, the fomer mayors and the rest of the Detroit political class that a recent survey of two neighborhoods in Detroit found at least 50% of all the streetlights didn't work, and its estimated that at least 40,000 of 88,000 streetlights in the city in total do not work.

When faced with a deal from the EFM that would settle the insane debt swaps the Kwame administration and city council went for that ended up costing the city dearly, and free up money for the city as a result, the City Council voted NO.

The deal would free up about $11 million per month in casino revenues currently tied up in the swaps.

It's a no-brainer and hopefully the EFM can overrule the city council on this one as they continue to play politics to cover their malfeasance in this affair and to play to their base and continue to ignore reality.

Yes, the city is rapidly crumbling back to a rural landscape.
