IAFF departments are some of the biggest contributors to the MDA and have been for more than 60 years!

Last year we raised almost $9,000. Local 1383 will be hitting the streets until September 19th collecting donations. Please use caution if you see us outside of our fire stations and in the roadways. We appreciate any donations that you can make to help us, and other Locals, in raising money for Muscular Dystrophy.

Thank you for a job well done!

Thank you for a job well done!

This morning, Local 1383 was dispatched for a residential structure fire in the area of 14 Mile and Mound. Initial dispatch reported smoke coming from the residence and a possibility of a victim trapped inside the building.

Fire companies quickly arrived on scene and began suppression operations. It was discovered that the fire had burned through the stairs leading to the second story living space. Ladders were used, along with a second hose line, to gain access to the second story to aid in fire suppression and searching for victims. We are happy to report, no one was inside of the house and there were no injuries to fire personnel.

Fire scenes can evolve into a very dynamic incident in just moments. The best resources to combat any hurdles that may occur are quick response times, plenty of manpower, and of course, training. The first due fire companies arrived on scene in just 5 short minutes from time of dispatch and had the fire under control in under 15 minutes. Great job Unit 2!

“There have been several threads circling about the city of Warren summer tax bills and the interactions between the Mayor and Council. I offer the following:

City Council solely adopts your tax rates. For 2020/2021 we adopted tax rates 3/4 of a million dollars lower for residents. The Mayor was attempting to print summer tax bills that didn’t include Council’s tax reduction.

City Council was forced to go to Circuit Court to protect the position of our charter, your other elected officials, and most importantly-the taxpayers.

Instead of having a court hearing which could have resulted in a restraining order against him, the Mayor agreed with council’s adopted tax rates. This led to our statement of “mutual agreement.”

We have numerous other issues before the court that will be discussed at a settlement conference this Wednesday. We will not be discussing those issues in the meantime.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In the best interests of Warren residents and in a spirit of cooperation, the Mayor and City Council avoided court action and agreed that the library tax rate for fiscal year 2020/2021 will be .6014. Their work has cleared the way for the issuance of the summer tax bills and generating the revenues necessary to operate. They have agreed to negotiate in good faith in the hope that they will resolve their remaining differences. Representatives of both sides will be meeting in the coming days to continue their discussions on a range of issues. They will be offering no further comment regarding their negotiations at this time.

Question for Mindy Moore. Regarding downtown development you said this last September in the Warren Weekly. “It’s very disappointing to me, and I would like to see us move forward with that,” Moore said. “I think we need a master plan that gives everybody direction, what we’re looking for, and takes into account what the residents would like." Could you let me know what's being done currently for downtown development. Thanks.

Hi, where can I find details re: the next WCC Meeting? Looking for Zoom details.
With an aged population, who's checking on the seniors that may not be able to get the food and prescriptions need to survive? Where is the leadership during this pandemic?
Mayor Foust, and City Council, where's the coronavirus testing and leadership in Warren MI? Twenty feet North isn't an immunity zone.
I am requesting that the City of Warren and our City Council provide an updated report on what our city is doing to STOP the spreading of the Corona Virus /COVID-19 in our city. I would like this report to include: Virus Prevention, Website information, City of Warren Testing locations within the city, and Health, Food, Small Business, and Unemployment Resource Information. Thank You...
