On today’s show, we’re talking with Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Candice Miller about that green ooze on I-696 and how it impacts neighbors.
Also, questions if sites in Metro Detroit haven’t been properly cleaned up, and, despite the city and county boundaries you see on a map, how we’re all, quite literally, connected when it comes to drainage and Lake St. Clair.
If you don’t know Miller, before this role, the St. Clair Shores native has had a long history of elected service.
The Republican has been Michigan Secretary of State, Macomb County Treasurer, Harrison Township Supervisor and a member of the United States House of Representatives.
Also on the show:
Updates on other sites owned by Gary Sayers, the owner of the shuttered Electro Plating in Madison Heights. Stories mentioned on Channel 4 here about a Detroit location and on WXYZ here in regard to Sanilac, including one about a mom and a 13-year-old possibly cleaning up the stuff in Detroit.
The City of Detroit is expanding its taxpayer assistance program to help keep low-income Detroiters in their homes. They say the program has already helped more than 7,600 homeowners. This round, depending on income levels, would exempt 25% of the taxes. Here’s a link to apply.
And we have details on the new commuter Detroit to Ann Arbor bus route that aims to have a pilot going this year.
