There have been past threads on it. You may try the search forum option on the left side.

I think it was a case that it was ruled illegal under Engler's tenure. To get it re-instated would require an act at the State level.

I believe that is the case but my memory of past threads is pretty foggy.

Sharon McPhail is currently in the process of launching a lawsuit to bring police officers and fireman back to the city. She has support of CC and the mayor. She is also working with the Federal Government (C. Cheeks-Kilpatrick)on this. Apparently under the new Homeland Security laws there are grounds to bring those people back into the city. Also with Engler out of the way and Granholm needing Detroit's votes for next year this may be the prime time to hit with this lawsuit. This was in the papers a few weeks ago.

Great. With McPhail working on it, it's sure to go down in defeat!

Amen, Morena - and did you notice how much ILD gave away in her post. She obviously works very closely with McPhail. Looks like she works in her office. Looks like she could be one of two people.

The residency requirement was changed by state statue under Engler. The odds on requiring employees who have already moved out to return to the city are remote. I also doubt that homeland security rules can be so interpreted; NYC does not have a residency requirement for its public safety people. There would be a huge outcry from their unions (and other public employee unions throughout the country) if homeland security rules and regs were interpreted to destroy this right.

I think the best we could hope for would be a change for future hires. But the city isn't going to be hiring very many people in the near future.

ILD:

Why don't you email McPhail and recommend that she start clearing out her office so her replacement can start moving in?

She's done. It's over. Say goodbye. Tell her to start lobbying for the DPS school superintendent position already and forget about lawsuits that we'll have to pay for again!

Residency requirements are counter-productive. As a business owner, my employees have a right to live anywhere they want to live. What a stupid "requirement."

since I've already disagreed to this level today, I might as well go the opposite direction and say that I couldn't agree more.

The fact of the matter is that the city should STRIVE to make the place desireable enough that City workers would WANT to live there. Not be forced to live there.

East Germany / West Germany 1950's - 1980's. Only to a lesser degree.

I have to disagree, this is not just any employer.Nobody is forced to live anywhere, you just cant have it both ways. Chicago and Cleveland has this requirement. And the first thing you're going to say is Detroit is not Chicago people want to live there. First thats irrelevant because its a requirement, love it or hate it they would have no choice. It is also a fact most the people who are city employees live on the fringes of the city. So you could guess that if Chicago were to lift those requirements most of those people are gone.

I think they should bring the residency law back.That way it will cut down on the heavy inbound and outbound traffic.

Let'em leave. That way they can't control the city vote.
