ANN ARBOR (AP) – Ann Arbor wants the University of Michigan to pay for traffic services to deal with tens of thousands of fans on football Saturdays. reports the school has until Aug. 26 to strike a deal with the city to reimburse it for costs associated with traffic management during the Wolverines home football games and other special events at Michigan Stadium.

City Council voted Monday on a resolution to set the deadline ahead of the Sept. 3 home opener.

The school’s Director of Community Relations Jim Kosteva says the university is willing to pay a “reasonable charge” for traffic management and an exact price is being worked out. He says an agreement should be reached in time to meet the deadline.

They already have a police and fire services arrangement.
