INTRODUCTIONS
None.
AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION - RESERVED TIME
GEORGE KEMPF - KLINE'S PARKING LOT
George Kempf, vice president of the Main Street Area Business Association, general
manager of Fiegel's Men and Boys Store, 318 S. Main Street, said that the downtown area
needs more short term parking spaces. He suggested three steps for providing more
surface parking in a timely fashion. They are: (1) negotiate with the DDA to assume the
lease of the Anthony Brown property for the purpose of surfacing that lot immediately, (2)
proceed with surfacing of the expansion of the present Kline's lot and making that available
as soon as possible and (3) to resurface the present Kline's lot. He suggested that the
Ashley/William lot be an attended lot rather than a metered lot.
LARRY FOX - PARKING IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA
Larry Fox, 530 S. State Street, said that part of the solution to the parking problem would
be attended lots rather than metered. He expressed the opinion that increased availability
will not solve the parking problem downtown because the City has made the revenues from
parking meters and tickets part of its revenue structure in the city budget. Also, the
elimination of downtown housing has contributed further to the loss of business; those
2 Council - August 19, 1991
people now live by the malls. Speaking on another subject, he said that the
Comprehensive Housing Affordability Study (CHAS), an act approved by the Federal
Government, requires each community to produce a strategy. He suggested active
participation by Council in the strategy currently being developed by the Community
Development Department.
JOHN KRUSO - ABC PAVING COMPANY BID ON THE ASHLEY/WILLIAM LOT
John Kruso, representing the ABC Paving Company, said that although his company was
the apparent low bidder on the project, they were notified that their bid would not be
accepted because of a prior problem on a resurfacing project with the City when a
subcontractor backed out of the job. He said that his company took full responsibility for
that incident and completed the job satisfactorily. He asked Council to reconsider the
award of that project and to award it to the low bidder.
LISA OLIVIER-SORENSEN - NORTH CAMPUS INCINERATOR FACILITY
Lisa Olivier-Sorenson, 2457 Stone Drive, a resident of the North Campus family housing
across from the North Campus Incinerator, said that she is seeking support from the
community in the form of resolutions and citizen petitions. She said that the incinerator
presents hazards to children and pregnant women. Even though the University has
announced plans to discontinue incineration, the changeover will take approximately one
year. She is concerned that the necessary filtration equipment will not be installed in order
to cut costs.

RESOLUTION TO CEASE INCINERATOR USE
AT DEAN/BAXTER ROAD
Whereas, July 2nd, the University of Michigan notified the Department of Natural
Resources of its intent to resume incineration despite a promise to the University's
Resident's Council that it would not do so until filtration equipment was installed;
Whereas, The University of Michigan's Dean/Baxter incinerator's current
calculations of allowable burn quantities, the current stack sampling scheme and flow rate
measurements, and current radionuclide isotopic analyses performed on the stack
emissions suggest that the operation of the incinerator would not meet the dose standard
and emission monitoring proposed requirements of 40 CFR 61, Subpart I, 54 Federal
Register 51697;
Whereas, Records show that the University on October 12, 1989 burned 50-75 lbs.
of materials composed of plastic containers filled with radiologically contaminated blood
and tissue not specifically allowed under their current permit, causing smoke and noxious
odors to affect the surrounding community;
Whereas, The general conditions of the University's permit 11-821, Rule 901 state
that the "operation of this equipment shall not result in the emission of the air contaminant
which causes injurious effects to human health or safety, animal life, plant life of significant
economic value, or property, or which causes unreasonable interference with the
comfortable enjoyment of life and property;
Whereas, The general conditions of the University's permit 11-281, Rule 208(3)b
state "operation of this equipment shall not interfere with the attainment or maintenance of
the air quality standard for any air contaminant;"
24 Council - August 19, 1991
Whereas, The University of Michigan has violated Michigan Act 64 and Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act at its Willow Run and North University Building facilities for
failing to submit proper documentation to the Department of Natural Resources and failing
to remove hazardous waste by the 90 days required under Act 64;
Whereas, The University has failed to properly communicate with the Ann Arbor
residential community of its intentions to continue operation of the incinerator without
proper filtration equipment or to timely provide documents requested by Citizens for Safe
Waste Disposal under the Freedom of Information Act; and
Whereas, Even with filtration equipment, the Dean/Baxter incinerator stack may be
too short for proper operation; and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Team Inspection
on March 13, 1990 stated that "increasing the stack height should be seriously
considered;"
RESOLVED, That be it known that the Ann Arbor City Council encourages the
University of Michigan to cease and desist its incineration of hazardous and radioactive
waste at the Dean/Baxter incinerator until such time that the University installs proper
filtration equipment and a review of the University's Air Quality Permit is conducted by the
Michigan Air Pollution Control Commission. Further, that the University investigate
alternatives to incineration and seek a program of waste reduction in University-related
research.
