(Sorry for the delay in this report, some extra research was needed, and last week's weather wasn't typical February weather.)If you looked in the next day's City of Ludington Daily News (COLDNews) or listened to the local radio for news of the February 13, 2017 Ludington City Council meeting, you would have to believe that the meeting centered around the long term contract negotiations with the current waste haulers. …See More

"Not bad ideas, guys, but volunteers are hard to come by in February to bell the city hall cats.  I just may shop the article around to the news once I get it all fine tuned.   "

"It'll all boil down to what the wording is in Stearns agreement with the city. If it says free for public use then the city can't profit from the property for ordinary public activity.   On the other towns?  The question would…"

    Downloading Videos

    Want to download videos for a thread or just to add to our Videos library, but are having a hard time figuring it out?  It's not hard once you know how to do it.  First you will need the Video's "Embed" code; on a typical video site like Youtube they will have a "share" button you need to click, you will then see an "Embed" button you need to click.  You will see the code all in blue, you need to "copy" (as in copy and paste) this code by going to your copy command.
