20/30 Plan Calls For Zip Line

Ziarco, at one council meeting, mentioned the possibility of purchasing the Utica Amusement Park property on Van Dyke, next door to the driving range property.  No one discussed the liability or how much it would cost to maintain it and how many employees would be needed to help people on and off.

Farmers Market Opens in June – In August the following articles appear in the newspapers regarding contaminated food being sold at the Sterling Heights Farmers Market:

Officials warn products sold at Metro Detroit Farmer’s Markets may contain Botulism  (Anyone who bought the affected products should dispose of them immediately, following special precautions)

Consumers urged to toss food products from local company (Locations where these products were sold – include Shelby Township, St. Clair Shores, Dodge Park, Sterling Heights and New Baltimore farmers markets.’

To our knowledge our City Council or City Manager has not stated what they are doing about this or as to what liability the city may have in this matter.
