June west, explain how this is working best for taxpayers when over $100 million was wasted without public knowledge of abandoning project and leaving taxpayers out to dry? This is worse than pinnacle racetrack fiasco.how can anyone account for such ridiculous blunders? At election time i hope taxpayers remember of unaccountabilties riddling this entire administration.

in the private sector some one would have gone to jail over this crap. but in Detroit someone or a bunch of crooks will get a bonus...
rebuild if you must but expect the same sad results when you rebuild with defective matterial.

Hopefully at least a lil' scrap money will be come out of this doomed project.

Demolition cost always exceeds scrap value. Yes, the metal and concrete will be recycled, but the investors will receive any value, not the county. Ficano wants to get this behind him before the election. He will be touting how well this worked out in the end. He wants taxpayers to know his nimble thinking turned bad circumstances beyond his control into a profit for the people. It's all about the people.
