Your Black World recently reported that Detroit is so broke that their firefighters don’t even have toilet paper. If that weren’t bad enough, there have been proposals submitted to abandon parts of the city because there is no money to provide public services.
Regrettably, none of these money saving solutions have given the cash strapped city the revenue needed to fix its budget crisis, so what now?
Some state legislators are now proposing that Detroit be dissolved altogether and absorbed into Wayne County.
Michigan Senator Rick Jones agrees that dissolving Detroit is an option which should be on the table.
“If we have to, that is one idea we have to look at. We really have to look at everything that is on the table,” Jones said. “Again, if this goes to federal bankruptcy, every employee down there will suffer, the city will suffer and the vultures will come in and take the jewels of Detroit and they will be gone.”
