Not adding up

Just reviewing yesterday’s email chain with City of Detroit officials.

In response to my email requesting the city stop deconstruction at the park, Alicia C. Bradford, director of the Detroit Recreation Department, said this at 10:53 a.m.: “… We are reviewing information and budget to determine if we will be able to replace equipment.”

Brad Dick, director of the city’s General Services Department, didn’t divulge his plan “to move a new and safe play scape to Fletcher Field, one that won’t hurt the children playing on it” until 3:21 p.m.

I can only speculate as to why the city didn’t explain what its intentions were at the park from the onset.
