MICHIGAN CITY — Two measures seeking to use city funds to help low-income families offset their home weatherization costs were denied by votes of 6-3 at the Michigan City Common Council meeting Tuesday.

The first failed measure was a resolution authored by Council members Bryant Dabney, Michael Mack and Dalia Zygas, who want the city to enter a memorandum of understanding with the North Central Community Action Agency, which performs weatherization services using federal grant money.

I Don't see why the city council can't take letters from the public for ideas to use the funds in the city where it counts. A different point of view can make a world's difference. May just get an idea or two that could put Michigan City on the fast track to being a 5 star metropolis the citizens can truly take pride in like never before!

They did add a form inside of our Water & Sanitation bills on the reverse side of some room for public suggestions on the disbursement dates of the 16 million/billions of dollars. Was any of the comments taken in consideration?
