Home Repair Assistance

From: http://wyomingmi.gov

Does your home need improvements? You may be eligible to obtain an affordable home improvement loan through one of the City of Wyoming's Homeowner Housing Rehabilitation Programs. Depending on total household size and income, home owners may be eligible for one of two programs. Funding for both programs are made available through the Federal Community Development Block Grants Funds.

The first program offers a deferred loan to homeowners in a lower income bracket and only requires repayment of the loan at the time the property is sold or transferred. The second program, a low interest loan, targets low to moderate income households and provides a loan at 3-percent interest for a term up to 15 years.

TRAFFIC ALERT: U.S. 131 ramp to M-6 shut down

UPDATE - The ramp has reopened.

CUTLERVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Michigan State Police troopers are shutting down the ramp from southbound U.S. 131 to westbound M-6 because of a fuel spill.

Troopers say the spill was caused when a tanker was involved in an accident on the ramp.

Grand Rapids and Cutlerville firefighters are responding to assist in the clean-up of the fuel.

Dispatchers do not know how long the ramp will be closed. 

Drivers wanting to go westbound on the M-6 Paul Henry Freeway are advised to get off the highway at the 54th Street SW exit of U.S. 131, take 54th/Gezon Parkway to Byron Center Ave. SW, then take Byron Center back to the freeway.

Made in Michigan - GM Components Holdings

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - For more than a century, when you heard "Made in Michigan", you proudly thought of the auto industry and by extension, General Motors.

For generations, Michigan proudly called itself the "the automotive capital of the world." The state was home to dozens of General Motors plants and many of them were in West Michigan. Then came the big crash.  When the auto industry started to collapse roughly three years ago, plants began to close and people began to lose their jobs.

Most West Michigan residents remember all too well the local fallout, including the former GM Stamping Plant, closed in 2009 and demolished earlier this year. It is just one of the many causalities of US auto industry's recent collapse.
