LANSING – Last month, State Representative and Democratic Whip Robert Kosowski (D- Westland) presented checks to the cities of Westland and Wayne to help with development to the parks and recreation systems.

“I am proud that I was able to bring home this money to my district,” Representative Kosowski said.  “By working across the aisle in a bi-partisan manner, residents in my district will benefit from having improvements done to our parks and recreation department.”

In total, Kosowski was able to secure $200,000 in the 2016-2017 budget cycle.  $100,000 of that will be allocated to the City of Westland.  Specifically, the money will be used for recreational opportunities in the Historic Norwayne District at Lincoln Field.  The remaining $100,000 will be apportioned to the City of Wayne, for repairs that are needed in the parks and recreation system.

“I look forward to seeing the projects as they unfold,” Representative Kosowski said.  “One of the greatest things about being a legislator is being able to have a direct impact on your constituents’ lives.  Hopefully the residents of Westland and Wayne will enjoy these improvements to our recreational areas.”
