Port Huron To Present Gun Buy-Back Day

At Monday night’s Port Huron City Council meeting, council voted to resurface and restripe three of the city’s tennis and basketball courts.  The courts at Sixteenth Street, Optimist Park, and Sanborn Park  will all see an overhaul.  According to Mayor Pro-Tem Sherry Archibald, the money will be put to good use in that it is important to keep our city’s parks in good condition in order to be attractive to our residents and out of town guests, making sure they are clean and inviting to those who wish to participate in activities when the weather calls for outdoor fun.  Also at the meeting Port Huron Chief Joe Platzer presented a plan for buying back guns.  He says in an effort to get guns off the streets the Port Huron Police Department will be accepting and paying for guns with no questions asked.  The price residents will receive, will depend on the gun itself.   The event will be held Saturday, April 6 from 11 to 3 for Port Huron residents.
