The Department of Public Lighting's power grid is down due to "extreme heat", meaning no electricity for the Coleman Young Municipal Center, the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice, Cobo Hall and Wayne State University (among others). The People Mover and various traffic lights are also taking a break. The ancient public grid is said to be in desperate need of overall maintenance, and the city is in the process of transferring it to DTE. [Freep]
