Voters in Detroit have capped a two-year process by approving a new city charter.
Detroiters voted to open the charter up for an overhaul in 2009, amidst questions about whether the current city charter enabled corruption.
An elected charter commission spent two years putting together the proposal. It faced stiff resistance from some prominent Detroit figures, including several Detroit City Council members.
But in the end, the new charter passed overwhelmingly, with about 58% of the vote.
