Podcast 08.18.14: Belle Isle, Investment in Pontiac & A Regional Water Authority?

Monday, August 18, 2014

On today's show, Laura Weber-Davis and MiWeek host Christy McDonald co-host, and kick off the week with a conversation about redevelopment in Pontiac with Crain's Detroit Business reporter Kirk Pinho. Detroit News Editorial Page Editor Nolan Finley discusses a deal between the suburbs and city that could turn DWSD ownership and operations to a regional authority. Before inviting callers to participate in the Belle Isle conversation, we'll hear Laura's interview with Detroit Free Press reporter John Gallagher and Belle Isle Conservancy President Michelle Hodges. What do you think of Belle Isle, since the state assumed control of the park six months ago? Listeners let us know! Plus, WDET's own Quinn Klinefelter recaps the latest bankruptcy proceedings and tells Laura and Christy about his conversation with a Syncora official.
