Can the city of Detroit sell Belle Isle to the state of Michigan? There's talk of that happening which would mean admission fees for park users. But not so fast. Councilwoman JoAnn Watson said any sale would be illegal because council would never support it. “Nobody can take away Belle Isle without the approval of City Council, and we’re not going to entertain that,” Watson said. “It’s outrageous.” [Motor City Muckraker]
