A little factoid for you all

State Shared Revenue is money that comes to the state from various taxing sources and is then returned to townships and cities. On a statewide average, Michigan residents see $24 in revenue sharing dollars returned to them. In Detroit, on the other hand, the average resident receives $241 per resident. Some might argue that our largest city needs a little additional help. But a tenfold increase? And what, pray tell, have they done with the money?
