We are sad to announce that Peg Angelos passed away Monday December 9th. Ms. Angelos served as a member of the Downtown Development Authority since 1991. She served as Vice-Chairwoman for the last 10 years. As a long standing member she helped oversee major downtown improvements like streetscape on Telegraph Road, Huron River Drive and Gibraltar Road. Peggy was an inspiration to all of our members. We will miss her smiling face.

Saturday afternoon Flat Rock was hit by high winds and lots of rain including Downtown. The rain flooded most streets in the city along with the railroad viaduct on Telegraph Road which had to be blocked off due to flooding. The winds took out trees and power lines causing a power outage on the south side of the city. It looks like the most damage was from Matilda and Telegraph to the South West City Limits. Hawthorn Ridge Sub and points south to the Huron River were without power for about 12 hours as DTE Electric replaced some transformers in the area. Tree limbs were down in the same area causing some problems for home owners and drivers. One resident in Hawthorn Ridge said “If it wasn’t tied down it was flying”.
