The damage occurred after Grosse Pointe Park officials acknowledged at a public meeting recently that they may back out of an agreement with Mayor Mike Duggan to remove the sheds.
Dozens of Grosse Pointers turned out to protest a shed built to block off traffic at Kercheval and Alter along the border of Detroit.
One councilman responded: “It is insulting for us to be continually portrayed as racists when we are not.”
The city of Detroit launched an investigation after we presented evidence that Grosse Pointe is building a farmer’s market on the wrong side of the border.
It is the fourth such barrier that Grosse Pointe Park has erected that prevents Detroit traffic from entering the predominately white community.
