Wyandotte City Council Holds First Meeting in New Chambers

An official dedication ceremony is expected to take place in the near future.

Thirteen years after purchasing the Chase Bank building at Eureka and Biddle, the city of Wyandotte held its first City Council meeting on the remodeled third floor Monday night.

For years, the city leased the building to several tenants, most noticeably Chase Bank and Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital.

With the hospital offices now moved out and relocated across the street and Chase Bank only occupying a portion of the first floor, the building has been turned into a new City Hall complex.

While most city offices moved from the old Wyandotte City Hall to the new one across the street a couple months ago, contractors have been busy putting the final touches on the new council chambers.

Monday night's meeting was the first meeting to take place inside the new chambers.

"This is the beginning of a new era for this city," said Councilman Leonard Sabuda, who chaired the meeting. "It’s a great day in the history of the city of Wyandotte."

Mayor Joseph Peterson was absent from the meeting as he's hospitalized at Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital with a bout of pneumonia.

A dedication ceremony is expected to take place in the near future.

The sound system is terrible. I could hardly hear what they were saying. I had to watch Jeopardy instead!

Agree with Marianne, Beautiful facility but the sound system is terrible over tv. Could hardly hear or even understand want was said.

It was difficult to hear at times in person, as well. I know that it's being looked at to see what can be improved. Hopefully those changes will be in place before next week's meeting.
