The Michigan Supreme Court on Thursday ordered a proposed revision to Detroit’s city charter to appear on the Aug. 3 ballot, overturning the decisions of lower courts on the matter.
In less than a week, Detroit voters will decide on Proposal P, a revised city charter.
A research organization calls the revisions “an unprecedented break with former charters in its scope and breadth of changes.”
Two lawsuits have been filed against the Detroit city clerk claiming she improperly certified a question that seeks to ask voters in August to approve changes to the city charter.
The separate suits were filed Monday in Wayne County’s Circuit Court on behalf of four plaintiffs, including three Detroit residents and pastor Rev. Horace Sheffield III.
