Residents say that a strange, nasty smell is coming from the building of Equipment Assets, an equipment facility on Knowles Street. Several nearby homeowners say they will be taking the issue to the city commission’s regular meeting on November 8th.
In the meantime, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment is investigating the claims as well, because of possible environmental concerns. The facility is set back from the road, so it shouldn’t have been an issue, but nearby residents say they can often smell burning rubber and other unpleasant odors wafting from the building, and can see black smoke being released into the air.
