Last Week Residents received the Spring Issue of the Hills Highlight Spring Edition number #95 In their mail box. It's the one with self congratulatory sticky note displayed on the cover. Mayor Coakley calls it a midterm report card and that may be so. On the downside, City Commission was hit with a number of job vacancies.
They included that of the former City Manager, City Treasurer, and City Building official. Read the article articles of the new City Manager, City Treasurer and City Building officials in this edition of the Hills Highlight and get acquainted with the new team. Regrettably Former City manager Cravens did the City no favors on his way out of town. In fact the the wheels might have come off City Commission they did not assuming all the bombs buried somewhere around have been found.
In London during Second World War a bomb crashed through massive dome of century's old of ST Paul's.Cathedral and buried its self thirty feet in the ground compliments of the Luftwaffe and there it lay being waiting to be discovered.
removed and defused.
The Brits who had many such phenomena
called them Uexb's or Unexploded bombs.
As a rule our Our City Commission does not go looking for Uexb's which is not always the smartest approach since Uexb's seldom go away on their own. In fact during the Blitz a British Royal of some peeridge, Say OBE took his butler and maid and went around London doing their bit by finding and neutralizing Uexbs. Eventually the law of averages caught up with them but not before the three became the stuff of legend.
This publication with very little effort has found three UXebs that require at the very least an inspection and perhaps even an explanation. Both were lacking in Hills Highlight #95.
So we sally forth on our own. Cherio.
Unexploded Bomb 1 . The Waste Hauler Issue is not yet dead.
No one could have imagined the magnitude of the Rizzo melt down or how it will or could effect Bloomfield Hills but it never hurts to ask. That is what the Township was doing. That is what other communities are doing Some residents have called City Hall to complain. There will always be complaints that is normal. What is not normal is the response the callers get is that the City is in contact with GFL. Really? How come the City has not been in contact with it's residents ? Our City has a long history by story of loyalty to trash hauler's what will that get them? GLF is the new kid on the block . Will we get what was promised by Rizzo. Probably not but it does not hurt to ask. The only communication on the matter the residents have double sheet of paper which many rules and regulations of being served by GFL which was inserted in the Hills High. It was unsigned by any one from GFL or the City
Which prompts the question often asked in the twilight of Rizzo and that is are we for GFL or they for us?.
