WARREN, Mich. (AP) - The mayor of a Detroit-area suburb plans to veto the city council’s unanimous approval of another used car sales lot and the expansion of a second one.

Mayor James Fouts said Monday that he’s concerned Warren would be dubbed “used car lot city.” He said placing a used car lot in a residential neighborhood could send “the wrong message.”

The Macomb Daily (https://bit.ly/1ThKCZI ) reports that Fouts issued public statements urging the city council to vote against the proposal, but last week the council granted special land use permits for both projects.

Fouts said he’s not sure whether any developers have shown interest in either location.

The city council is expected to take up the veto at its Jan. 8 meeting.
