Garbage gully



A call to the Community Standards Unit of the Ann Arbor Police Department revealed that no one else had complained about it. An email to Kroger spokesperson Dale Hollandsworth went unanswered. A second message, five days later, did get a response: the area had been cleaned up within twenty-four hours of the first message.

Hollandsworth indicated in a subsequent phone conversation that the accumulation wasn't that unusual. "It kind of comes and goes," he said. "The same young people that get the [shopping] carts off the lot ... patrol the area and [clean] it as needed. Sometimes it gets a little heavier."

When it does, Hollandsworth says, "it should be taken up with the store manager, absolutely. I would strongly encourage that."    (end of article)
