WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Tempers are growing short in the neighborhood around Ideal Park in Wyoming.
The city park remains closed because debris from the July 6 tornado still hasn’t been cleaned up.

Downed trees litter the park. Signs warn people to keep out.
“I feel like I still live in a tornado,” said Irene Reiffer, who lives across the street. “I look at it every day and it’s just as bad.”
She said the last she heard from the City of Wyoming about it was an Aug. 19 letter that they were getting bids to clean up the park.
24 Hour News 8 checked City Council minutes and found that on Sept. 2. they approved West Michigan Tree Services’s bid for the Ideal Park clean-up.
Dan Klaver, president and co-owner of West Michigan Tree Services, said a crew will be at the park Monday to start cleaning up. It can’t be soon enough for fed up neighbors.
“People in the area are about ready to take a petition up and go against Wyoming,” said Reiffer. “That is how ticked off they are.”
