The Plymouth City Commission authorized approximately $250,000 of Road Bond Revenues to be used on two intersection upgrades at its regular meeting held on Monday, April 5. The improvements would include pedestrian signal and mast arm upgrades at Harvey and Penniman, and Harvey and Ann Arbor Trail. The authorization is contingent on DDA approval of like amounts of money at its meeting scheduled for Monday, April 12.
Dispose of unused medicines
Medicine cabinets are usually one of the items affected when spring cleaning fever strikes. Unneeded medication can now be taken to the restored Drug Collection Unit on the main floor of city hall on Main Street. The service was suspended during the pandemic but was restored earlier this month in an effort to reduce the amount of unneeded medicine in residents’ homes, decrease prescription drug abuse, and keep drugs out of local waterways. The unit is open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday only. Officials stressed that drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked, although users should stop at the police counter to check in items for disposal. Only pills in either plastic bottles, with or without labels, or plastic bags are accepted. No glass bottles, no liquids, no needles, no creams and no inhalers will be accepted. More information is available at the City of Plymouth Police Department at (734) 453-1234 ext. 219.
