The City of Wyoming - Committed to Energy Efficiency

From: http://www.wyomingmi.gov

Some initiatives not new, but the right thing to do

A year ago, the City Manager issued an Energy Management and Efficiency Policy, and an Energy Efficiency Team was formed with a goal of reducing energy use by the City of Wyoming by 10%.

Water and wastewater services have historically had the greatest use of electricity and natural gas. Occupancy sensor light switches were installed in these facilities, as well as variable frequency drive motors on water treatment equipment. We altered building temperatures and revised process management strategies. Wherever possible, procedures that use a lot of energy are accomplished at night, when energy costs are lower.

6th Annual Pumpkin Path at Lamar Park

From: Facebook

Lamar Park, Saturday, October 10, 2009 · 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Join us for our 6th Annual Pumpkin Path on October 10. Last year, 70 Wyoming businesses, clubs and organizations "hosted" spaces along the path to hand out prizes, toys and candy to the approximate 3,000 children that participated in the event.

The Pumpkin Path was developed as an alternative to the usual Halloween Parties that many groups put together. We wanted to provide Wyoming residents the opportunity to acquaint themselves with their neighborhood businesses and enjoy a fall event with their families. Although costumes are optional, you will find many smiling faces dressed as their favorite super hero, cartoon character or animal at the event.

Applications are being accepted for poll workers for the November 2 Election, reports Wyoming City Clerk Heidi Isakson. “We have a large pool of election workers, but we also need people trained and on stand-by in case we have cancellations. In order to accommodate the higher turnout for this election, we may need an additional 30 poll workers.” Election Inspectors set up equipment and voting stations, greet voters, approve voter applications, issue ballots and keep accurate records of the voting process. An election inspector must be a registered voter in Kent County, have clerical experience and ability, and good written and oral communications skills. Those interested must complete an application form, including naming a political party affiliation, and attend a two-hour inspector training session.
