"I absolutely refuse

Opposes building new

More of the police

"If you use something

lieves the U should

Wants to see senior,

Feels building codes
need to be upgraded
from present levels.

Would like to see the
system modiifed.
Against Dial-A-Ride:
says it's not an effec-
tive way of utilizing
transportation. Fav-
ors fixed-route sys-
tem and limiting
Dial-A-Ride to handi-
capped and senior
citizens.

Ought to clean up
township pockets and
peninsulas where
people enjoy use of
city services. Bring
in light industry.

More parking in the
downtown area. Pos-
sibly redirect some of.
the Dial-A-Ride serv-
ice into a reliable,
inexpensive shuttle
service from outijing
areas. Supports addi-
tional structures
funded through gen-
eral obligation bonds

The WANT squad and
anti-burglary unit are
important and useful
units. Should seek out
the small drug push-
ers as well as the
large dealers.

Garbage pick-up is as
good as can be ex-
pected without a tax
increase. Snow re-
moval needs to be
improved. Fix pot
holes through general
obligation bonding or
federal money.

Inequitable for city
not to be compensated
for revenue lost from
the U not paying
taxes. Need strong
lobbying to "turn the
tide." U should meet
demands for more
housing, "but I don't
think they have
enough money."

bays wheeier has
used "bureaucratic
overkill" to smother
the money coming
principally from the
CDBG. Opposes
mayor's plan for
neighborhood centers,
questions whether the
