PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — When we were covering some high profile crimes in Pontiac a few months ago, our team was approached by business owners who were concerned about the bad light being shined on the city. They said so much progress has been made toward curbing violence, increasing the police response time and the change in the downtown business area, calling it simply amazing.
As promised we went back to Pontiac to have a sit down with eight local business owners and we talked to the mayor to get their take on the evolution of Pontiac.
