Detroit to crack down on scrappers

Last night, during his annual State of the City address, Mayor Mike Duggan promised that if residents called 9-1-1 to report a vacant property where scrapping was in progress then the Detroit Police Department would respond. More importantly, he promised that they would arrest the scrappers.

Quite frankly, I would like to see the Warrendale neighborhood take Mayor Duggan up on this. Therefore, I ask everyone that if you see a home or business being scrapped in the Warrendale neighborhood, please call 9-1-1 to report it immediately.

Also, please leave a comment here or send me an email. I would like to let everyone know what kind of response you saw from the Detroit Police Department.

I'm excited by the Mayor's announcement. I believe it's an important step forward for Detroit.

Recycling workshop comes to Warrendale

I previously posted about a recycling workshop that will happen at Don Bosco Hall this Friday from 1 - 2 p.m. Since many people cannot attend due to work obligations, a second one has been added for Monday, April 11 from 6 - 7 p.m. in the Activities Building of Ss. Peter & Paul Church.

Eligible residents who attend either workshop will receive a free recycling bin. This will enable them to participate in the City of Detroit's curbside recycling program.

A flyer for this workshop is located above. Please share it with your neighbors.
