Add Russell Street Deli to the list of Eastern Market businesses that are closing after the buildings they're in were recently purchase by wealthy developer Sanford Nelson.

While rumors of a dispute between Nelson and Russell Street owner Ben Hall have been swirling, the Free Press confirmed that the deli's last day will be April 28.

The city of Detroit on Monday rejected Marathon Petroleum’s request to skirt an ordinance that requires petroleum coke to be stockpiled in enclosed containers.

Petroleum coke is a byproduct of the oil refinery process and is so dirty that it can’t be burned in the U.S.

The city’s Buildings, Safety Engineering & Environmental Department (BSEED) said Marathon was unable to demonstrate that “they have not caused a public nuisance.”

"They have offered no analytical data or air monitoring data of any sort that would conclusively show that there are no fugitive dust emissions from the coke pit," BSEED Director David Bell wrote.…

Fiat Chrysler is asking Detroit and state taxpayers to kick in at least $160 million dollars for its proposed Mack Avenue plant on Detroit's east side.

Of that total, around $13 million in tax incentives would provide relief from city taxes, while the remainder would come from the state.

The automaker was supposed to present a list of community benefits it will provide in return for the taxpayers' contribution during a meeting with residents last week, but it failed to do so. Company reps then said they would provide the list at a Monday evening meeting.

Fiat Chrysler has said it plans to invest $1.6 billion building a new plant at its Mack Avenue facility and $900 million to modernize its Jefferson North Assembly Plant.…
