|Detroit home being demolished|
From the Detroit Free Press:
The FBI has joined a federal investigation into Detroit’s demolition program, according to a source familiar with the investigation.Duggan campaigned on speeding up the razing of abandoned dwellings--but the per-house cost has soared since he took office.
The FBI is the second federal investigative agency looking into the demolition program — an ambitious effort designed by Mayor Mike Duggan to tackle Detroit's massive blight problem.
"We are assisting," the source told the Free Press. "We're more of a background player at this point."
Late last month, a federal inspector general subpoenaed records from the Detroit Auditor General's office, which is also investigating the demolition program.
Everything seems to be a racket in Detroit--just like in Chicago. And there is big money for the grabbing even as a city falls apart.
