It is certainly going to be another "pins and needles" day in the saga that has been the Tiger Stadium preservation effort.
The following is an AP wire story picked up by the Detroit News (why a local paper has to rely on AP for such news is beyond me):

Detroit council set to vote on fate of Tiger Stadium
DETROIT -- The pitch to save part of Tiger Stadium is once again in the hands of the Detroit City Council.
The council is set to decide at its Tuesday meeting whether to authorize the complete demolition of the old ballpark.
Crews began tearing down the stadium in June. A corner of the ballpark has been left standing while a preservation group tries to raise money to turn it into a sports museum.
The Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy was told to pay the city $219,000 by Tuesday morning to hold off total demolition. The group says it can pay $69,000 Tuesday and wants until the end of the week to hand over the rest.
The stadium's fate last came before the council in July, when a vote was delayed while preservation advocates and city officials continued to negotiate.
