The city of Detroit earns a C- for online transparency from Sunshine Review, a “pedia” site that rates thousands of local governments using a transparency checklist it developed.

SR’s managers seem surprised the grade is not lower, asking on their Facebook page, “Anyone else surprised?”

A table including 26 (mostly smaller) Michigan municipalities rated by the site reveals a few “F” grades (Benton Harbor among them), and some “B” ratings also, but none yet with an “A.”
