I would like to thank the Mayor and Council for doing what they did at last night’s study session. This was the first time that I felt everything was being told to us total transparency they showed the residents in the room that the City has been doing a lot on the issue of Ecorse Creek flooding. Starting in 2004 until last night a span of 11 years. There is much more to do and all of us as residents are going to have to do our part too. I hope going forward that we can have more of these types of meetings on this issue and others in the City.
I do have one question it was mentioned that the DPW department request Wayne county to clean up the creek and add soil. I would like to know how many request have been made, and has Wayne county responded to those request and how often? I think it’s important that the residents know just who is dropping the ball here. If Wayne county isn’t responding to the request then what can we as residents do?
