<![CDATA[Re: Robert Snell and Darren A. Nichols' June 18 report, "Revamp of Water Dept. key to Detroit's restructuring": Suburbanites and city residents all had the chance to say no to the zoo millage, but we said yes as a majority. Since the water department, the zoo and the DIA are all supported financially by the residents that use them, they should all be regional organizations. Detroit is a unique place and is well supported in a number of both public and private venues by nonresidents and residents alike. Taking the name of Detroit off of things is useless and unnecessary, but adding the regional or metropolitan behind that name would be productive and, in a small way, write a new line in the history of Southeast Michigan. A name change would simply make in name what these institutions are already, which is regional, I believe it would prevent privatization. Mark Durfee, Detroit The water department and Belle Isle are the reasons we have an emergency manager. The city didn't need an emergency manager to file bankruptcy, the state needed an emergency manager to steal the assets before the city files bankruptcy. Val Showers, Detroit The old ways are not working. Detroit needs an influx of money. Neither the state nor the federal government are going to give it away. The city is now threatening creditors with bankruptcy. Banks will not lend money to a city that will not pay back its previous creditors, so what is the solution? Costs have been cut to the bone. Joseph F. Overaitis, Detroit Giving control of the water department to the same people who abandoned the city: That'll inspire confidence to increase the tax base. Steven P. Schonfeld, Detroit Water is a precious commodity, Just ask Nevada, California and Texas. They have been trying to tap into the Great Lakes for years. The bondholders will pimp Detroit's last major cash cow. Dwone Williams, Flint
