Wayne County Commission passes resolution supporting police, police reform
“You’re not saying that you do not support police officers when you call for police reforms. We all agree that there needs to be more training. I absolutely do believe that we need police reform, but for people to take it out of context and talk about how that also means to basically eliminate police departments, that’s lunacy,” said Commissioner Jonathan C. Kinloch.
Should hazardous materials be allowed to be transported on the Ambassador Bridge?
DETROIT The owners of the 91-year-old suspension bridge across the Detroit River asked the Michigan Department of Transportation to allow trucks carrying flammable, chemical or corrosive materials to cross the bridge. An estimated 10,000 trucks cross the Ambassador Bridge every day and bridge owners are pushing for a change to allow trucks carrying Class 3 Flammable liquids and HAZMAT Class 8 Corrosive substances to be transported over the 4-lane bridge. We dont need to be adding potential hazardous material slips onto the bridge or into the river, Chang said. His ferry is allowed to transport trucks carrying hazardous materials and admits this change would affect his business. Meantime, the Wayne County Commission unanimously voted to urge Michigan officials to block the bridge from allowing the HAZMAT to be transported.
