"Is it illegal to have a dog on a leash within the confines of the high water mark on the Great Lakes in Michigan where the public has the right to walk the beach? It might make an interesting Court case"

Lighthouse Breakwall Vandalized

"Well, this is what the City inspired with their vagrant garden and building murals. The City should only seek these persons to commission them on the next Art Blight Project. "

Thank you! I stumbled across your site through a search about water/sewer regs in the city. I found your post from January about the surreptitious raising of the rates. This explains in part why my condo dues are going up - the association budget is showing a $1000 INCREASE in water/sewer cost for the next budget cycle Oct 2014-Sep 2015.

Do you happen to know the rules for condo buildings? Can I suggest we install meters for each individual unit and have the co-owners pay their own water bills? Or, does the city only put one meter on a condo building and expect the association to pay for it altogether?

Please let me know what your e-mail address is.  I have a copy of a judicial opinion that I think will help you in the section of your FOIA litigation where you're arguing about FOIA fees.  Perhaps you can use this opinion to seek reconsideration of that crazy decision that was just issued by the Court of Appeals.
