Interview With Jim Bruckbauer of the Michigan Land Use Institute

Interview With Jim Bruckbauer of the Michigan Land Use Institute

On Tuesday, May 3rd, voters in Grand Rapids, East Grand Rapids, Kentwood, Wyoming, Grandville and Walker will vote on a millage to increase service on The Rapid, the area's public transit bus service.  To help voters who may be confused by some of the information I did an interview with Jim Bruckbauer, who works as a transportation policy specialist with the Michigan Land Use Institute

Nick Manes: If you could tell me a little about your position with the Michigan Land Use Institute and why the Institute views the Rapid Yes millage as being important?

Snow Emergency Update - Plowing Status

From: http://www.ci.wyoming.mi.us

Wyoming, like all other communities, plows the streets with the greatest traffic volumes first. The major streets (multi-lane streets) have been plowed at least once and are passable. The second priority streets (residential collectors) are being plowed this morning, but only with one lane in each direction. By this afternoon, the snow will hopefully come to an end and the process of clearing all of the streets will begin. This normally is accomplished within 24 hours, which means that all of the streets should be plowed by sometime Thursday afternoon. Additional snowfall or interruptions from water or sewer issues could extend the plowing schedule.

Winter Weather Message from Wyoming City Manager

In anticipation of the weather that is being predicted for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, I wanted to let you know that City Departments are preparing to deal with this upcoming weather event. I also want to share a few winter weather reminders with you. 

Given the predictions provided by local and national weather outlets, it is likely that we will see varying but significant snow accumulations throughout the area.  When combined with high wind and drifting, road conditions will get messy.  The bulk of the snow is being predicted for early Wednesday morning, between 3 a.m. and 9 a.m.  During this period, crews will do their best to keep major streets passable, as well as key second priority streets.  Once the snow stops, crews will be able to shift focus to begin clean up of the entire City; beginning with the major streets and then with the second and third priority streets.
