I have a question! Snow from the Bridge Street area was plowed by the city into the parking lot of Lincoln Park at Garfield and Jackson. Now the snow is melting, and trash is spreading all over Lincoln Park and the surrounding neighborhood. Will the city be picking up all the trash, cigarette butts, etc? Or will it be left as litter? Thanks! Fred Quillin

Could you give us your insight as a Mayor into the recent implementation of the Emergency Financial Manager bill in Benton Harbor?
