St. Clair Shores City Council heard a series of proposals Monday to attack the city's rodent program that includes a baiting program and a $5 per-rat bounty program.
St. Clair Shores City Council heard a series of proposals this week to address concerns about rodents in the city including a $5-per-rat bounty program. The bounty program was one of the more controversial proposals in the discussion between city council and acting city manager Mike Smith. Under the proposal brought to council, only rats trapped in St. Clair Shores by residents would be eligible for redemption. "We are attempting to do what we can," said Mayor Kip Walby, who added that he is open to all suggestions in the city's efforts to address the rodent problem.

Grosse Pointe Shores council will not consider putting the Move to Macomb County issue on the November ballot. The topic may be revisited in coming years as council discussed that more research is still necessary.
Following months of tense, if not aggitated, discussion about Grosse Pointe Shores potentially leaving Wayne County and joining Macomb County, the council Tuesday night decided to put the topic to rest, for now. The Shores council unanimously agreed to accept a report from the Move to Macomb Committee established late last year to research the idea and report back to council about the findings. In the same vote, the council put the committee's work to rest. Councilman Dan Schulte, who spearheaded the creation of the committee and was the council liasion, motioned for the council to consider putting the move on the November ballot. The motion did not gain any support, meaning the topic is squashed for now. Councilman Alexander Ajlouni said …

The portion of Lake Shore Road that travels north from Vernier Road leading to St. Clair Shores is lined in orange barrels as a resurfacing project gets under way.
Orange barrels lininig Lake Shore Road will remain as a contractor works to repair and resurface the only stretch of the roadway that is not considered a county road. The project is heavily funded by a federal grant with a small contribution from Grosse Pointe Shores and will allow for the section of the well-traveled road to be brought up to similar conditions that exist in the other Grosse Pointes. Construction technically started June 18, which is when the barrels and other construction equipment began showing up on the roadway. Some residents questioned why the Shores would take on such a large project considering the ever-tightening purse strings. During the last council meeting, Councilwoman Kay Felt said the project may be happening…

The Grosse Pointe Shores city council rescinded last week's vote to seek an advisory vote from residents about a possible move from Wayne County to Macomb County.
The Grosse Pointe Shores city council voted Tuesday in a special meeting to rescind their decision to gather an advisory vote from residents in the August primary about whether to exit Wayne County and join Macomb County. Their decision was fueled by a variety of factors, including many unanswered questions, feedback from residents following last week's decision and additional information from state and county elections officials saying advisory-only votes are not allowed. A Shores elections official contacted the state elections office and the Macomb County elections office and in both cases received information saying advisory only votes are not allowed, McInerney said. Elections officials require votes be on action items, he said. They …

Emagine is taking its movie theater plans to Macomb, not the Pointes. The City of Grosse Pointe council is expected to make a decision during its next meeting in June related to the remaining proposal from Grosse Pointe Theatre.
Emagine Entertainment has withdrawn its proposal for a 35,000 square-foot building that would house an eight screen movie theater in the Village, City of Grosse Pointe Manager Pete Dame announced Monday. Their withdrawal means the city council will only have one proposal to consider, which is a 40,000 square-foot cultural arts center with a 400-seat theater for live productions and a banquet area by the Grosse Pointe Theatre. Dame said Emagine Entertainment found another location in Macomb County that will house 12-14 screens rather than the eight proposed in Grosse Pointe. The company, he said, believes the new location is more ideal for development and will still draw clientele from the Grosse Pointes. The exact location in Macomb County…
