After it was originally postponed until the spring, the Big Ten football season was reinstated last month and will begin this weekend. On Tuesday, 12 mayors -- 11 from Big Ten cities, as well as the mayor of Lansing -- sent a letter to the league requesting a few additional precautions be put in place. Work with local and county health officials to agree on a positivity rate that would make a city unsafe to hold a game. “We know the history of football games within our cities,” the letter says.
Warren City Hall celebrates leadership history of the 3rd largest city in Mich.
WARREN, Mich. – Portraits of seven Warren mayors dating back to 1957 will be unveiled at Warren City Hall on Wednesday, October 17th. Warren Mayor Jim Fouts initiated the idea of placing the portraits in the new City Hall when he realized that the portraits formerly displayed in the old City Hall were missing. "We found them stored somewhere and Patrick Photographic Studios in Warren updated them," said Fouts, who said the mayors date back to the day Warren became a city. "I had the honor of serving on the City Council with three of the mayors (Randlett, Bonkowski and Steenbergh)," said Fouts. "Some of the mayors were adversaries, but I am sure the atmosphere will be friendly as they recall their fond memories of their service to Warren," said Fouts.
