WARREN, Mich. (AP) - Mayor James Fouts thinks there are too many secondhand vehicle businesses in Warren and worries that the Detroit suburb may one day be called “Used Car Lot City.”

Fouts says in a release Wednesday that he has directed Warren’s zoning and planning departments to “freeze” considerations for used car lots until the city ordinance governing them is thoroughly reviewed.

Warren is just north of Detroit and has a population of about 140,000 people.

Fouts says Warren has 55 used car lots which “very often detract from” the city’s appearance and that many of the vehicles “look like junk cars.”

Fouts also has opposed a state law that allows fireworks saying their use disrupts Warren neighborhoods, and established a National Day of Prayer for all religious faiths at City Hall.
