    DETROIT (AP) — A judge has ordered the demolition of the deteriorating Packard auto plant in Detroit, finding that it had become a public nuisance. Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Brian Sullivan wrote in an order that the plant’s Peruvian owner, Fernando Palazuelo, and his company, Arte Express Detroit, must remove all rubbish and debris from the sprawling site and demolish all buildings and structures on the property, which covers several blocks on Detroit’s east side. The March 31 order declared that the more than 30 parcels owned by Palazuelo “are a public nuisance which interfere with common rights enjoyed by the general public by significantly threatening the public’s health, safety and welfare.” The abandoned Packard auto assembly plant stands in Detroit, Michigan, USA on April 13, 2017. (Photo by Patrick Gorski/NurPhoto via Getty Images) Demolition and abatement work has to start within 42 days of Sullivan’s order, with clean up completed within 90 days. If the work is not completed, the city is authorized to have it done, with Palazuelo possibly being responsible for the costs which are expected...

    TORONTO (AP) — The truck blockade by Canadians protesting the country’s COVID-19 restrictions is tightening the screws on the auto industry, forcing Ford, Toyota and General Motors to shut down plants or otherwise curtail production on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border. The bumper-to-bumper demonstration entered its fourth day Thursday at the Ambassador Bridge connecting Windsor, Ontario, to Detroit, disrupting the flow of auto parts and other products back and forth across the border. The bridge is the busiest U.S.-Canadian border crossing, carrying 25% of all trade between the two countries. Ford said its Windsor, Ontario, engine plant reopened Thursday after being shut down on Wednesday because of a lack of parts. But the factory and the company’s assembly plant in Oakville, Ontario, near Toronto, are operating at reduced capacity, the automaker said. “This interruption on the Detroit-Windsor bridge hurts customers, auto workers, suppliers, communities and companies on both sides of the border,” Ford said in a statement. “We hope this situation is resolved quickly because it could have widespread impact on all automakers in the U.S. and Canada.” On...
    (CBS Detroit) — Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is encouraging residents to sign up for auto insurance before the amnesty period expires on Jan. 1, 2022. Michigan’s auto no-fault reform provides amnesty to previously insured drivers, meaning they could obtain insurance without penalty or increased premiums.

    DETROIT (AP) — Famous for gazing over eyeglasses worn on the end of his nose, Carl Levin seemed at ease wherever he went, whether attending a college football game back home in Michigan or taking on a multibillion-dollar corporation before cameras on Capitol Hill. Michigan’s longest-serving U.S. senator had a slightly rumpled, down-to-earth demeanor that helped him win over voters throughout his 36-year career, as did his staunch support for the hometown auto industry. But the Harvard-educated attorney also was a respected voice on military issues, spending years leading the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee. Despite his record tenure and status, he kept his role in perspective. At his direction, the portraits of all 38 senators who had served before or with him since Michigan’s statehood in 1837 were hung in his office conference room. Two empty spaces were reserved for future senators. “I’m part of a long trail of people who have represented Michigan,” Levin said in 2008. “I’m just part of that history. The people coming after me … can pick up where I leave off, whoever they...

    Chrysler Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, MichiganBill Pugliano | Getty Images DETROIT – Manufacturing employees in the city, such as autoworkers, are now eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine without any restrictions such as age or proof of preexisting conditions. The expanded eligibility for Detroit manufacturing workers marks a major expansion for autoworker eligibility for vaccination following similar actions by municipalities such as Boone County in Illinois. It should assist in keeping employees safe and auto plants up and running. The United Auto Workers union estimates at least 10,000 of its members work in Detroit. A total number of manufacturing workers living in the city was not immediately available.

    CBS Detroit – Michigan’s main insurance regulator is raising concerns after auto insurance companies are telling customers the wrong information regarding the recent insurance reforms to Michigan’s old no-fault law. Many people are being told they cannot make changes to their policy until their policy is up for renewal. This means many Michiganders are being told they have to wait months before they can make changes to their policies. In an article by the Free press, Anita Fox, who is the director of the Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS), says what people are being told is false, and maybe in violation of the law. In a bulletin that was released, Fox said this was improper behavior. Insurance companies in the State of Michigan must give the option to modify an existing policy, OR give the consumer the option of canceling their policy and reissuing a new one to reflect the changes they desire.

    DETROIT, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) – The new auto no-fault law takes effect in Michigan on Thursday, which provides motorists with additional options to save on car insurance. For the first time in 40 years, Detroiters can choose the level of personal injury protection coverage that works best for them, including opting out completely. Mayor Mike Duggan recently outlined the changes and the ways residents can lower their auto insurance premiums under the new law. At his news briefing July 1, the Mayor reminded residents that insurance savings don’t happen automatically, but they will need to contact their insurance company to discuss their options. For more information on provisions of the new law and to view the Mayor’s presentation, go to detroitmi.gov/autoinsurance. © 2020 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved.
