Seems ok now.
I'm coming in with complete ignorance here but it would be nice if neighbors could talk to each other before running to the authorities? Maybe this person has and this is just the last straw. I don not know and apologize if so. Further though, being someone hoping to someday gain some independence with a business of my own, I would like it if the city took home business more seriously and made it as easy as possible, providing, of course, that the business remains an asset and uplifts a neighborhood. Thanks.
Click is asking if I want to close this. I'm going to leave it open as it's just one of those ongoing things that will probably need constant attention as long as drunks and liquor stores remain in the neighborhood. At least the snow covers it for now. :)
I cleaned it up Saturday but it keeps coming back of course. Does not help that the liquor stores have no outside garbage can for patrons to get rid of pint vodka bottles and food/candy wrappers. Is there a chance the city can put a trash can or 2 more on Saginaw? Outside Toolan's and Rite Aid would help. Ill keep pulling my own dumpster to take care of it routinely but probably not every week. If anyone else wants to help please feel free to bring a garbage bag and definitely wear gloves. Ill close this issue soon. Thanks.
Closing this unless I hear too many bangs too often or too late again. Thanks.
Thanks Carol. Looking forward to City of Lansing fixing this ridiculous state law ASAP. It has been quieter last week or so but they still go off now and then. The way things have been in Lansing this summer its hard to know if its a shot gun blast or just some idiot with a mortar.
Thanks Ron. I've heard that Lansing did something about this but I can find nothing online. Looking at the law, at least if they decide to pop them off in the street they can be busted. Last I checked streets are still "public property." "prohibits a person from
igniting, discharging, or using consumer
fireworks on public property, school
property, church property, or another
person’s property without that organization’s
or person’s express permission. A person
who violates this subsection is responsible
for a state civil infraction."
"The state law allows cities and townships the ability to restrict some uses in their communities. Like Muskegon Heights already did, municipalities can establish an ordinance to ban the use of the consumer fireworks throughout the year, except for 30 days covering national holidays and the day before and after them." http://www.mlive.com/news/muskegon/index.ssf/2012/07/fireworks_law_sparks_complaint.html#incart_river_default
Id like to ditto this one. They seem to do this all the time and it needs to stop.
While we still NEED the speed bump, the playground is a dead issue as Eric at the Ingham County Land Bank finds it more important to build yet ANOTHER useless, unneeded, unwanted house on the open lot and perpetuate the continuing glut of declining in value Lansing housing.
Reminding this is still an issue.
No one has explained this to me or replied in anyway.
DONE! Thanks for getting to it quickly.
That was fast! Thanks.
Sorry to reply so much, I know this lands in a lot of mail boxes. I've said all I need to say here. Find me on face book if anyone wants to discuss further. Thanks.
