City Council on Tuesday is expected to approve a lease and easement for the project, part of the next phase in the selection process. 

DTE Energy is looking for a place to install a one-point-three megawatt solar array, and the city has proposed locating the array on four-and-a-half acres of land that once served as a landfill, north of I-94 and east of Huron Street.
