DETROIT -

The Detroit City Council on Wednesday voted to issue a subpoena against Mayor Dave Bing. Council members want more information about the mayor’s city reorganization plant, especially the plans for Detroit’s health and workforce development departments.

Reorganization is called for under the city’s consent agreement with the state, but City Council thinks the mayor is shutting out the council and he formulates his plans.
