  1. Just a quick note. I appreciate reading and hearing all the responses. Many great ideas and suggestions, as well as expressing priorities for our community. As elected officials, we must embrace civic engagement and eagerly seek to work together to implement viable solutions which improve our community and quality of life. Many of the projects I task myself are the direct result of input from our residents comments. These include American Disability Act (ADA) accessible playground equipment and municipal facilities, communication opportunities such as the E-Letter Communication, use of Social Media, Constituent Office Hours, offering Ordinance Drive Arounds and follow up resolutions to issues & opportunities, Resolution to support Repeal of PA256 (fireworks sales), to name a few. People do not believe that they can make a difference when it comes to the decisions that shape their communities. But, when they are shown otherwise, many are ready to jump on the chance to get involved. Community members don’t consider that they can solve the problems they see around them by organizing and engaging with government.

    Lastly, I wanted to provide some additional status updates on issues which are important to our residents. On City Council agenda, Tuesday, August 25, 2015; In light of numerous complaints about fireworks, I have submitted a Resolution, for City Council consideration, and adoption, which urges the repeal of the current state fireworks law (PA256). The Resolution asks for the Michigan Legislature to pass House Bill 4725 and 4726 which would repeal Public Act 256 of 2011 and reinstate the ban on aerial and explosive fireworks.

    Public Act 256 provides for the sale of consumer fireworks, including aerial and explosive fireworks. It severely restricts the authority of a local unit of government to regulate sales, possession and use. Local law enforcement does not have the resources to enforce regulatory local ordinances.

    Please feel free to call me at (313) 348-9848 with questions or concerns.

  2. In some states you can have man-made grass that have no weeds and requires no expensive WATER, and need no cut or trim, or treatment by chemicals, and the best of the best stay green yearlong lifetime and you if you like to be colorful this grass comes in all colors and shapes.

    Watering your average lawn increase your water bill a lot, and chemicals are expensive. Some people prefer to pay for their medications and doctors visits co-payments and health insurance deductibles first, then for food and household expenses, and usually have no money left if they are on limited fix income.

    We pay for drinking water to water the grass. May be its a good idea to collect rain water in a will and use it for watering our lawns. Lawns don’t need chlorine and fluoride and few other sanitizers and disinfectants.
