Title

Recognition of Ann Arbor Staff for Assistance to Grand Rapids

Memorandum

An ice storm wreaked havoc on Grand Rapids the weekend of February 9, 2019, resulting in a call for aide by Governor Gretchen Whitmer. In response, Public Works Manager Molly Maciejewski immediately organized Ann Arbor crews and equipment to assist. On the morning of Monday, February 11, Ann Arbor staff Logan Stolly, Dave Patterson, Kyle Tite, Bill Dale, Aldo Ianelli and Glen Thomas worked through frigid temperatures for two days, alongside crews from Kalamazoo, Lansing and other cities, to help clear debris and chip fallen trees in Grand Rapids streets.
