Link Drop - July 1, 2009

  • Mayor Bing finally spoke in public yesterday on the need to reform the culture of City Hall (News). You can watch the speech here. (He speaks from the 4:25 mark to 45:10.)
  • A curbside recycling trial starts today in select neighborhoods (Crain's). The Council is still trying (likely in vain) to end the incinerator contract to ensure the program's a success (Free Press).
  • Kresge Arts in Detroit is keeping the city's art scene afloat almost single-handedly (Metro Times). The Kresge Foundation also funds the Riverfront Conservancy, the M1 light rail plan, and every major art institution and non-profit in the city. They deserve our endless praise.
