Council members voted down a proposed lease 6-0 that was signed by Governor Rick Snyder and Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr at a special meeting Monday afternoon.
The first lease was for 30 years in two 15 year increments. And the state would spend $10 million to $20 million in improvements.
The City Council lease would be in 10 year increments and guarantee the state does the improvements, council members say.
The Loan Board has 30 days to decide which lease is implemented.
