DETROIT (WWJ) – With about one thousand flooded basements in Livonia, Mayor Jack Kirksey says they’re trying to help senior citizens who may not be able to carry damaged items out of the house.

The Mayor says they’re setting up a hotline for seniors and disabled residents to call to get some volunteer help.

“A number were asking, you know, where can we go for help if we don’t have the financial wherewithal to get some help?  We’ve  got wet items in the basement. The basement’s been pumped, but there are a lot of things just down there in the basement that we have to get out to the curb,” says Kirksey.

The city of Livonia will hold a public forum for residents with flooded basements next Thursday night (June 2) at Livonia City Hall.

The hotline is (734)-466-2552. Folks that can volunteer to help can call (734) 466-2205.
