I think this site will be very interesting to follow. Plymouth is a great city and I'm proud toRead More call it my hometown. I was born in a home still located at the northwest corner of Ann Arbor Trail and Hamilton St. in 1934. My dad, Harold Behler, owned and operated Plymouth Dairy at that time which was located in a small building behind our house. We moved to 266 Irvin St. in 1936 and that is the house I grew up in. I graduated from Plymouth High (closed) in 1952, and Michigan State in 1956. My first wife of 50 years, Clarice, passed away in 2005, and I was re-married in 2008 to Jeannene ("JJ"). I'm retired from Chrysler Financial Corp. and after living in Lake Pointe Village 47 years we sold our home there in 2012 and moved to Homosassa, Florida. But we still spend our summers in Plymouth/Canton and I retain my membership in the Plymouth Optimist Club..
Gordie Bardeleben, Darryl Bazman, and Frank Barkovich. Without these guys, nobody gets their order right!

Reaume & Conzelman stumble under questioning from a longtime Plymouth Township taxpayer.

I cannot believe my eyes, my fourth reworded request was turned over to the Township attorney. WhyRead More won't the at least try to answer questions.

Section 15.240 subsection 10 of the 1976 FOIA states the following: "(7) If the circuit courtRead More determines in an action commenced under this section that the public body has arbitrarily and capriciously violated this act by refusal or delay in disclosing or providing copies of a public record, the court shall award, in addition to any actual or compensatory damages, punitive damages in the amount of $500.00 to the person seeking the right to inspect or receive a copy of a public record. The damages shall not be assessed against an individual, but shall be assessed against the next succeeding public body that is not an individual and that kept or maintained the public record as part of its public function." Mr. Zantop, since you have been persistent and you initiated the request, I implore you to contact the Michigan Attorney General. I am contacting the State Auditor and providing as compelling an argument as I can for the auditor to conduct a thorough investigation of funds. Notably, where are the monies for the Independence Day activities, who got paid what during the "ol' switcheroo" of a land development on North Territorial that was approved for residential and suddenly was "converted" to a private school, etc. Quite frankly, I am more than pissed off by the incompetency of this administration.

I think this an example of one party rule, not unlike Wayne County. Absolute power corrupts,Read More republicans and democrats alike. Unless there are substantive debates and serious challenges in the voting booth, there is very little to hold them accountable.
