Camilleri was  joined by Gov. Whitmer for budget presentation and roundtable with community leaders


Posted April 22, 2019 — 4:45 p.m. EST 

Today, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer joined state Rep. Darrin Camilleri (D-Brownstown Township) and Congresswoman Debbie Dingell at Trenton City Hall for a budget presentation and roundtable with local elected officials and community leaders. Gov. Whitmer highlighted key issues facing the community and state and her solutions for addressing them, including increasing funding for road and bridge repairs as well as K-12 and higher education funding, including for skills and career training.

“I was honored to welcome Gov. Whitmer to our Downriver community to share her vision to strengthen our schools and communities,” said Rep. Camilleri. “I look forward to working with the governor to ensure that we build a Downriver to last by tackling our infrastructure problems, making sure every community has access to clean drinking water, and finally funding our schools.”

Rep. Camilleri, a former public school teacher, serves as Democratic vice-chair on the House Education Committee where he is advocating for the more than $500 million increase in K-12 education funding proposed in Gov. Whitmer’s budget. The increase would be the largest K-12 funding increase in a generation of Michigan students.

Detroit Metro Airport invites contractors to learn about job opportunities


Posted Monday, April 22, 2019 — 11:00 a.m. EST 

 

Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is inviting contractors to attend the Centralized Deicing Facility (CDF) and Runway 21R By Pass Taxiway Construction Project Outreach Event. Contractors, including Small Business Enterprises (SBEs), will receive information on the scope of this non-federally funded project, the schedule, the bid solicitation process, SBE certification and goals, as well as participate in vendor networking sessions.

In addition to installing 75,000 cu. yd. of Portland Cement concrete pavement, companies are needed to construct the new deicing control tower building, security fencing, storm and underdrain systems, glycol lift station, and to provide airfield electrical, asphalt paving, high-mast lighting, and other services.

The new deicing facility will be centrally located on the airfield within the footprint of the former L.C. Smith Terminal, which is currently being demolished. The CDF includes deicing positions for seven narrow-body aircraft, with the option of one wide-body aircraft deicing spot. The facility also includes a new taxilane, overnight parking spots for aircraft, and facilities to support the deicing operations. A new two-story, 3,000-square-foot deicing control tower building is included with the project, along with infrastructure to capture glycol run-off from deicing activities. The new Runway 21R By Pass Taxiway will provide additional stacking and queuing for aircraft departing Runway 21R.

The event will be held Wednesday, May 1 from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. at Romulus Athletic Center, 35765 Northline Road, Romulus.

Contractors are asked to RSVP by visiting http://dtw.app.rsvpify.com/. For more information, call (734) 247-7900.
