Washtenaw County, Michigan
All Washtenaw residents diagnosed with Lyme disease are reported to Washtenaw County Public Health. To date, there is no evidence that transmission of Lyme disease has occurred in Washtenaw County. In West Michigan, however, infected tick populations are present along the lakeshore. County residents may be exposed in other parts of Michigan or in other states.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office Deputy Visel and K-9 Karn has been awarded "catch-of-the-quarter" award by the United States Police Canine Association. K-9 Karn was recognized for his ability to track down a probation absconder in a heavily wooded and overgrown area.
Working in partnership with the City of Ann Arbor and the Leslie Park Golf Course, we have completed a yearlong restoration of Traver Creek. This $1.7 million project reduces sediment, phosphorus and polluted runoff entering the Huron River from the 4600-acre Traver Creek watershed.
