Congratulations Chief Master Sergeant Downey and thank you for your service! See you in July.

FOREVER humbled by OUR Community! Through the War on COVID-19, you still represent the values that have carried me for 30 years. I have chased EJIW/Ej manholes around the world and have shared our paradise with every person that would listen, as I stared down at the street saying that is where I am from. As that story is something that connects us ALL, it is TRULY the people who make our City of East Jordan, GREAT!. I never saw that, "Paradise" when I was a 17 year old punk, but I have to tell you looking back and where I am today...East Jordan, is what carried me through! I pray you all stay safe and healthy as we embrace a world of isolation and new normal. Take the time to let it show you what is important in life and NEVER forget where you come from! Ej Proud! Class of 1990 - Always SHINE!!! FOREVER GRATEFUL, WE ARE EJ! Thank you, ALL!

I’ll see if I can stop by and shake your hand while on leave Chief!!

Congrats! Thank you for your Service!

Thank you for your service an looking forward to seeing you in July

Thank you. That’s a lot of years of sacrifice. I am sure your mom is thrilled that you are coming home.

Thank you for your service!!

“While we encourage and appreciate our residents’ efforts to disinfect during this flu outbreak, we would like to remind everyone that those Clorox and Lysol wipes should be thrown in the trash. Our sewer department is seeing an increase in wipes plugging the collection system pumps and pipes. Each time a pump gets plugged, an operator has to open it up and manually remove them, exposing themselves to the very same germs you were trying to avoid. Thank you for your efforts to keep our city safe.” ...

I don't understand the stupidity of so many people.

DO NOT FLUSH WIPES DOWN THE TOILET!!! PUT THEM IN THE TRASH!!!

DK Boyd

Geez ignorance is bliss

Common sense people!

Scott Curtiss

Quit breaking the dookie pumps people!!!!

ewww

How many times does the city have to say this?!?! 🤬

Gross .please dispose your wipes correctly people

Not good!

Unless it's TP, DON'T FLUSH IT.. even the "flushable wipes" don't break down as fast as toilet paper and will clog up the pipes

I worked at a sewer and water treatment facility and the amount of tampon applicators and wet wipes is disgusting. The tampon applicators would just float on the tanks of raw sewage... they have to scrap out of a caged whole in the ground on top of a steal filter with a rake... i had to pick raw sewage off of that on a rake into a bucket... please stop this.. its brutal for people who work at the plants...

People should automatically know this!!!....😡😡😡.....obviously just dont care!!!
