FUNDRAISER TO BENEFIT RACKHAM GOLF COURSE

HW residents Bruce Carnick and Harry Katkowsky have organized a fundraiser for golfers and all net proceeds will be used to fund improvements at Rackham.   Although Rackham is located in Huntington Woods, the golf course is owned by the City of Detroit and managed by Signet Golf Associates.  Carnick and Katkowsky recognize that the City of Detroit has limited resources and investment in the golf course and the clubhouse have not kept up with the demands of a first-class golf course.  On Saturday, May 18th, the 1st Annual Short Game Skills Challenge will take place at Rackham which includes playing 36 holes, a continental breakfast and lunch.  The entry fee is $99 and first prize is $1,000.  Donations from individuals not taking part in the golfing challenge are welcome.


Call Harry Katkowsky at 586.536.3797 for an information packet on participating in the Challenge or being an event sponsor. MORE INFO

The Huntington Woods - Pleasant Ridge Friends of the Library needs new members to  help with their fundraising activities.  All proceeds support Library programming and events.  The Friends of the Library President Melissa Kessler issued a letter encouraging residents to support the organization and their efforts.  The Friends most successful fundraiser is the bi-monthly used book sale and volunteers are needed to sort the books and staff the sale.  If you have time and value the Library, please consider joining the Friends of the Library and contributing to their success.  You can get more information by emailing HWFOTL@gmail.com.
DTE TREE TRIMMING PLANNED
DTE Energy has advised the City it will be performing tree trimming as part of its ongoing maintenance program in Huntington Woods this year. The area where the trimmers will be working is shaded in green on the map. At this time they have not provided us with a date that the work will begin. DTE does communicate with residents along the proposed trim route using letters, phone calls, knocking on doors and leaving door hangers if no one is home.

Residents will be informed about trimming or removals on their property before the work begins. Trimmers do not remove trees without permission. More information on their communication plan can be found on the DTE website.
DTE TO ADDRESS STREET LIGHT OUTAGE ISSUE


DTE has notified the City that they are undertaking a streetlight reliability project to address the ongoing issue with street light outages between Wyoming and Woodward.  Starting in February, DTE contractor Harlan Electric will begin troubleshooting and cable testing existing underground streetlight wires along the streets marked on the attached map


Upon identification of any cable irregularities, those cable sections will be marked for cable replacement.  The replacement will be completed by using a directional bore method so disruption within the City right of way will be minimized.  Residents in the area will see miss Dig flags installed prior to the underground work beginning.  Any restoration to the ground within the right of way will be addressed in the early summer.  Please contact Amy Sullivan at
 asullivan@hwmi.org or 248.581.2632 if you have questions on the project.
