Fire department mergers could cut taxes in Detroit area

Counties around Detroit, Michigan, are looking for ways to cut taxes. Lately, the fire departments have been asking for tax increases so that they can keep the firemen that they have on the payroll, rather than slashing jobs. Economic times have been hard in the area as of late, and laying off more workers is only going to make things worse and potentially put people at risk if the department cannot retain enough people to provide excellent services. Local residents have grown tired of the tax increases and asked them to stop.

Michigan teachers picket for new employment contracts

Teachers in Iron Mountain, Michigan, have been working for more than 600 days without a contract. The school has been facing some very serious budget issues, losing around $1 million in state funding.

Contract dispute slows development in Detroit, Michigan

When the Ford Wixom site that use to sit near the intersection of Wixom Road and I-96 was demolished, developers hoped that it would not take long to begin construction and bring commercial tenants to the area. The Detroit-based Ford Motor Company even sold the majority of the land -- 240 of the 317 acres -- to a developer for that purpose. However, a contract dispute is now holding up development and reportedly making it so that people who were once interested in the land are no longer looking to build there.
