Detroit hearing rescheduled

Efforts by the city of Detroit to revise its building code will have to wait another month.

A public hearing before the Detroit City Council scheduled for June 9, has been rescheduled for July 11. 

The code work is being led by temporary city planner Mcrae Carmichael of the Mid-Willamette Valley Council of Governments. 

Carmichael said that the postponement was necessary to “allow for additional notice and information to be provided to the public prior to the next hearing.”
