Grosse Pointe Park public safety director Dave Hiller had a great idea about consolidating the Grosse Pointe public safety departments. All five Grosse Pointes are slightly less than St. Clair Shores in size and SCS does well. It seems like folks in GPF and GPC were opposed to it. If they were all consolidated into a GP Public Safety Authority dispatching could go to this central location as well.

Think again,
The reason GPP and GPS are hurting is because of POOR City Management.

Why are other Grosse Pointe communities doing better? Because they have responsible and professional people running their city.

If your city needs to save money so bad that the notion of consoldation is the only way to do it, here's a better way.

Get ride of 6 water front parks and the 100 or so employees that run them. How about the separate DPW's? Better yet..Courts, Judges not to mention, City controllers, managers, building inspectors.

Blah Blah Blah...Yeah compromise Public Safety to save a buck. Genius
