Make Civic Engagement a Livonia Priority in the
Marnee: Two comments...on my favorite weekly read:
First, Toy and Mang are a dynamic duo that can do wonders for the City of Livonia. Many, many people are more than willing to volunteer and work with them to see their visions become a reality.
Our gift giving using local merchants, not only gives our economy a boost, but promotes a friendly atmosphere with our merchants. VIC'S CAR WASH is located on Plymouth Rd. E. of Middlebelt on the S. side of the street. Family owned with very friendly service!
See you at President's Cabinet meeting.
Typewriter: Let's see those Cabinet meetings scheduled for the entire year and put them to good use. I look forward to seeing you and the others at the next meeting.
Matt Collins: I received my reply from David Varga today (on the use of the) Old Courthouse for Community use:
"We appreciate and understand the continued interest by non-profit groups and other organizations in the old 16th District Courthouse building. Unfortunately, there is currently no opportunity to make the building available, other than for special occasions and temporary uses. As you know, currently the building is used for the commodity food distribution program.
"Once budget funding is available, the Mayor intends to use the building as an annex for the Livonia Senior Center.
"We have accommodated the Livonia Save Our Youth Coalition with office space in the City Hall and that arrangement is meeting the needs of that organization and has provided good use of vacant space in the building. Provided that other organizations can meet ongoing expenses, the City may have additional space available in City Hall for organizations that may want to consider a similar arrangement."
Typewriter: Matt you are doing a great job following up on strengthening our volunteer sector. For that reason I will eat even more of the Lions Club corn on the cob at Spree this year and take on all challengers in a corn eating contest.
Colleen Burton: As one school board member reading your question, there are currently no plans or any money allocated in the upcoming bond to move the school board building to another site.
The focus of the bond is to address high needs of the school district. This has not been brought forward as a high need by students, staff, board members or the community.
Typewriter: I can always rely on Colleen Burton to provide information and respond to questions. Thanks Colleen for clarifying this issue.
Debra Bonde: Thanks (to the service clubs) for including Seedlings, And what a great idea!! I hope it is well received and keeps on rolling.
Charlie Mahoney: this (new resident mailer) is great - thanks to Kathy and Eric and of course the service clubs for making it happen. Great start for 2013.
Jim McCann: I think (the new resident mailer) is great and it would be a great thing for real estate brokers to have. They might be able to put a link on their listings to this. There could also be direct links to the City, Parks and Rec, Schools etc.
Beth Labadie: Great job (on the new resident mailer)!
Typewriter: Thanks to you and the Livonia Optimist Club for sponsoring the first printing and mailing. Keep up the good work.
Haika Gay: Nice (new resident) newsletter, well laid out, colorful, informative telling those who are moving to Livonia what a great town they've chosen.
Typewriter: And thanks to you for offering to help with the proofreading of future issues. And we did make the one significant change you pointed out. We changed St. Paul's Players to Paul's Players. Good eye.
