voter identification cards
PUBLIC NOTICE ALL REGISTERED VOTERS IN RIVERVIEW, WAYNE COUNTY, MICHIGAN

Please be notified that new voter identification cards have been mailed to each Riverview registered voter in May.  Precincts have not changed, but the district numbers have changed as follows:

Congressional District: 6th
House: 27th
Senate: 4th 
County Commissioner: 15th

This card is issued for your information.  You are not required to present them to vote.  The Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission (MICRC) was established after voters approved a 2018 constitutional amendment that transferred the power to draw the state's congressional and legislative districts from the state legislature to an independent redistricting commission.  Redistricting is a legally required process that occurs every 10 years in which districts for the U.S. House and state legislatures are redrawn. Once the U.S. Census Bureau releases new population figures for all 50 states (in every year ending in “1”), seats in the U.S. House are handed out accordingly.

RIVERVIEW RUBBISH PICK UP NOTICE TO RESIDENTS

Many residents are not conforming to the new trash hauler's guidelines of making sure their garbage totes have the numbers facing the street and the handle should be at the curb.  The haulers now have a mechanical arm that picks up the tote and lifts it overhead to dump  into the truck.  Please follow these guidelines as the workers are wasting time having to get out to turn all the totes the correct way so that the arm will work. 

Please kindly inform your neighbor who is doing it incorrectly as not all residents have the internet.
