The weather may have cancelled the MLK Freedom Walk, but it did not stop the uplifting Westland-Wayne MLK Day Celebration. The ceremony featured Suffragan Bishop Luke McClendon, Mayor Wild, Mayor Rhaesa, Bishop Larry Mack, a video greeting by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the Christ Temple Apostolic Church Choir, Saxophonist Steven Thomas, the John Glenn High School JROTC and the Mistress of Ceremonies, Juanita Francis, as well as many local leaders. The partnership between Westland and Wayne turned out to be a very beautiful and fitting tribute of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr..

Westland DPS crews will continue to clear neighborhood streets and apply salt as needed over the next couple of days.

Due to freezing temperatures, tomorrow’s MLK Walk has been cancelled. City Hall doors will still open at 8:00 a.m. and the ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m.
Thank you for your continued patience. These type of winter storms tax the City’s manpower and equipment.

that there is still more work to be done.
Westland’s dedicated DPS employees remain fully committed to the safety of all Westland residents, businesses and visitors.
Also, please take care of outdoor pets as freezing temperatures will continue throughout the upcoming week.
Due to the extreme weather conditions, Monday morning's Westland-Wayne MLK Freedom Walk scheduled to begin at 9:00 A.M. is CANCELLED. The ceremony WILL still start at 10:00 A.M. in the Gene McKinney Grand Ballroom in Westland City Hall as scheduled.
Westland Snow Emergency Update 10:00 a.m (Sunday)
DPS Crews worked 20 hours straight yesterday and cleared the major roads, emergency routes, city parking lots and 10 neighborhood sections.
Mechanics came in at 3 a.m. this morning to change blades on trucks, fuel them up and get them ready for an early morning deployment.
Trucks were back on the road before dawn clearing and salting major streets and then got back into the neighborhoods working on the remaining 16 sections.
Crews will work throughout the day and should have all sections finished up this evening.
Once the trucks have come through your neighborhood, it is ok to park in the streets once again.
Please continue to show patience and know that the crews will work all day tomorrow as well, going back to areas that were missed or that need additional attention.
Continue to give extra care to outdoor pets as temps remain below freezing.
