DETROIT (WKZO) -- Despite bankruptcy and being under an emergency manager, the Detroit City Council has granted a twelve-year tax break worth nearly 600-thousand dollars to General Motors.  The abatement is aimed at getting the automaker to build new logistics facilities at its Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant.  Emergency manager Kevyn Orr will have the final say.
