Summer in the City Guide

Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick has published a Summer in the City Guide. When I first heard about it, I thought it would be just another one of those cheap publications that tell you about entertainment options during the summer.

While it does have some of that information, it also has a lot of very good and extremely useful options such as:
  • Information on down payment assistance for first time home buyers;
  • Details on trash pick-up in Detroit;
  • Fire safety tips from the Detroit Fire Department;
  • Information on the various cooling centers throughout the city;
  • Complete schedule for concerts at Chene Park this summer;
  • Crime prevention tips from the Detroit Police Department; and
  • Information on the Home Heating Credit, which Detroiters have until September 30 to apply for.
I encourage everyone to download this this guide.
