Crucial Moment and the Thursday Deadline: Will there be an EFM in Detroit?
I have really stayed mum on this topic, mostly because it’s so deep and complex that I struggle with the “proper” narrative. And so instead of suggesting the merits of an EFM versus reaching some sort of consent agreement, I think it’s best to follow the process on your own and establish a position on the issue for yourself. Whatever the case, our city is at a crucial moment.
This afternoon– actually, right now– City Council is discussing the consent agreement. The meeting started at 1pm. Follow Steve Neavling via Twitter (@Freepreporter) for the best up-to-date play by play of the meeting that Pugh is holding. The Thursday deadline looms where a decision MUST be made by the state. If a consent agreement isn’t reached by that time, then the EFM could come in at that time. Of course, beyond that, there are many complications that make it such a complex issue– but those are the basics.
