Grosse Pointe Shores Residents To Vote On Exit Of Wayne County

By Sara Eaton Martin

Grosse Pointe Shores residents will be asked in August to vote about whether they would like their city to secede from Wayne County. Their decision will guide the city council as to whether a committee devoted to studying a move to Macomb County should continue to pursue the idea.

The discussion began as an update from the council's Move to Macomb Committee liaison, Dan Schulte, and evolved into a vote from the council to garner a decision from the city's own residents.
