It's been exactly one year since an F-3 tornado tore through the Village of Dexter, damaging some 400 homes, with 36 of those homes suffering major damage.
Dexter Village Assistant Manager Courtney Nichols says there 's still some repair work going on, specifically at the car wash and the laundromat. She says most of the homes have been repaired or re-built.
Nichols says it was very fortunate that the financial cost to the village was only $45,000, which mainly went to cover clean-up and tree removal service.
Supporters and opponents of the Village of Dexter continue to discuss the possibility of becoming a city. Both sides share a love for Dexter, but they are unsure of what becoming a city will mean for them individually, or as a community.
Ultimately, voters are asked to decide if they want to find out what proposals the City Council Commission would make, or if they definitely want to remain a village and end the process now. Hear the full story from WEMU's Andrew Cluley.
