EAA To End Its Existence Tomorrow
Noon Ceremonies To Signal Merger With Ann Arbor
Outdoor ceremonies marking the official end of East Ann Arbor as a city are slated to be held at noon tomorrow within the municipal corporation that is passing from existence.
The observance is scheduled to take place by the flag pole in East Ann Arbor. The flag pole is near Packard and Platt Rds.
The ceremony will take place at the exact time East Ann Arbor officially becomes a part of Ann Arbor. Annexation of the city of some 2,000 persons to Ann Arbor was voted by electors of both cities Nov. 6.
City Administrator Guy C. Larcom, jr., said today the observance will include remarks by Ann Arbor Mayor William E. Brown, jr. Larcom was placed in charge of arrangements by the mayor.
Councilman David G. Dickinson, who served as head of the Ann Arbor council’s East Ann Arbor annexation committee probably will be master of ceremonies, Larcom said.
Remarks also are expected from Councilman Charles W. Joiner, who is of the City’s Third Ward in which East Ann Arbor will be included.
Larcom said comments probably also would come from East Ann Arbor Mayor Robert W. Harrington and some members of the East Ann Arbor City Council.
The observance will include a display of various types of equipment used by Ann Arbor.
Clerk To File EAA Certification At Noon
County Clerk Luella M. Smith will go to Lansing tomorrow to file official certification of the vote count which approved annexation of East Ann Arbor to Ann Arbor.
She plans to file the certification at exactly noon, when officials will hold ceremonies here annexing the smaller city to Ann Arbor.
Filing of the certification with the secretary of state’s office in Lansing will make the annexation legal. Certifications are usually sent to Lansing by registered mail.
Mrs. Smith will be taken to Lansing by sheriff's car.
