Detroit Mayor Warms to Downsizing
The mayor was part of a recent Time magazine and Brookings Institution-sponsored forum on rebuilding the city. He also mentioned a few other broad ideas to revise the way the city works.
"The city needs more federal dollars to survive and help jumpstart transportation projects, clean blight and address illiteracy rates among children and adults.
Crucial city services like fire, police and garbage pickup will be maintained; others could be changed or privatized."
