Muskegon voters to consider library funding


MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Voters are being asked to approve a bond proposal to make improvements to Hackley Public Library.

The City of Muskegon, the county, and the State of Michigan together are asking voters to approve borrowing $3.2 million. The money would be used to make repairs and update mechanical systems, including the 1964 boiler and many of the radiators. If passed, it will cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $27 annually.

Hackley Public Library Director Martha Ferriby said the building really needs better windows, too.

"They are double pane, but they leak. The hardware is going out, and the window sills have rotted. We need to make this library more energy efficient, save the taxpayers a lot of money, and preserve the building, because water coming in is not a good thing."

If passed, the bond proposal would last for 15 years.


Residents, council members concerned over violent crimes



MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) – Muskegon Heights council members addressed safety concerns and pushed for more progress, following Tuesday's double murder.

"It went from the street and the drive by violence to domestic occasions now," said Councilman Eddie Jenkins. "Really bad domestic violent occasions."

Until recently, Jenkins lived just doors down from 62-year-old victim Judy Bushman.

Another council member, Anthony McDonald, who works at a local funeral home told WZZM 13 that the violence and crime needs to end immediately and it's up to the public to take a stand.

"We really need the help from the community," McDonald said. "Because a lot of the times when we get the call [the crime] has already been done."
