The stars have been aligning for Hamtramck lately.
By that, we mean there is state and federal funding in the pipeline that will likely be coming to Hamtramck.
It could be millions of dollars the city receives in the coming months – all of which will go toward replacing our crumbling water and sewer system, some parts of which are 100 years old.
City officials don’t often get credit for the behind-the-scenes work they do to help secure funding for major repair projects. Instead, you see a lot of finger-pointing and baseless accusations from people who seriously need some mental health work.
Improvements do get made in the city – but it doesn’t always happen lightning fast.
The wheels of government can move painfully slow, but that’s just the way things are in life.
Much was said of change being needed in city government, and this past election did produce change. But change just for the sake of change doesn’t get anything done.
We are lucky that we have some experienced folks in the city administration and in our political leadership. It’s a shame that voters decided to toss some of that experience away.
But Hamtramck soldiers on, and the near future-looks promising.
