WYOMING, Mich. — The Michigan Professional Firefighters Union is expected to call for Wyoming City Manager Curtis Holt’s resignation at a city council meeting tonight.

The firefighters allege that Holt refused to accept a $1 million grant that would have allowed the City of Wyoming to add six firefighters to its department.

The city council meeting tonight is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Wyoming City Hall on 28th Street.

FOX 17 reached out to Holt for a comment, but our calls were not returned.

    Just for the record, the Fire Fighters are not asking for his resignation, its the State Professional Fire Fighters Union as well and the citizens of the City of Wyoming. Also, the Fire Fighters are not alleging that Holt refused the grant, another news channel found this information through the freedom of information act.

    Please do not condemn or lay this on the fire fighters, they go to work every day to do their job, which is to protect the citizens. This is the citizens way or protecting them and their jobs.

      Sorry Karen but saying the "citizens of Wyoming" are asking for his resignation is completely inaccurate. Very few are asking for his resignation. To be accurate, two people were at the meeting asking for it. The third, is not a resident but a member of the Michigan Professional Firefighters Union. I would hope they would support their own but he does not speak for the citizens either. As for Ms. Kooyers and her comments, she does not speak for the vast majority of citizens, she speaks for herself and the few that give her the time of day. I would like to know her "specific" qualifications that give her any credibility with what she speaks of, and not the generalities she infers. I would encourage people to be cautious of people summarizing and look for the true answers that are just a phone call away.
