In Brief: Council Approves Police Car Purchases, New Tennis Courts
Dearborn City Council met Monday night. Among other items on the agenda, council approved building two tennis courts at Ten Eyck Park.
Dearborn City Council held its regular meeting Monday night at City Hall. Here's a look at some of the agenda items discussed.
1. Funds from the Wayne County Parks millage will be used in part to build two tennis courts at Ten Eyck Park. The total cost is $85,550, awarded in a contract to Best Asphalt, Inc.
2. Four vehicles were purchased from the state with money from the drug forfeiture fund. The vehicles will be used by the Dearborn Police Department and cost $21,789 each.
3. The Henry Hotel purchased a new liquor license from the Pizza Hut restaurant on Michigan Avenue to replace their current liquor license. The resolution also approved to add a new dance-entertainment permit to the license.
The Henry's General Manager Bill Quiseng said Monday night that the entertainment license "is for us to have live entertainment in TRIA."
"If we do, the music will be low-key, acoustic guitar background," Quiseng said. "We have no immediate plans, but since we were requesting the purchase of the license, we wanted to go through all the obstacles at the same time."
4. The Kiwanis Club of Dearborn was granted permission to hold their annual Peanut Drive Sept. 8-11. The fund-raiser benefits several local charities, including the Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive, Boys and Girls Scouts.
"Look for them in the streets," Council President Tom Tafelski said. "When you buy the peanuts, it really does go to support programs throughout the city."
