BAY CITY, MI -- For the past four years, the Bay City Commission has annually approved some combination of water and sewer rates, driving up utility bills and angering residents. And at the commission's meeting Monday, July 17, there was expected to be another round of utility hikes to cover increasing costs and maintenance projects for the year. But with zero discussion during the public hearing Monday, the no votes kept coming.
BAY CITY, MI -- Bay City's youngest commissioner is resigning from his 3rd Ward seat after accepting an interim city manager position in Pinconning, but there's a chance he could come be back after the November election. Andrew Niedzinski, 31, submitted his resignation letter to the City Commission Thursday morning, July 20. Earlier in the week, the Pinconning City Council voted unanimously to hire him as the city's interim manager following the abrupt departure of William Jasura.
BAY CITY, MI -- A 1960s-era metal facade that has covered up one of downtown Bay City's more iconic buildings for the past five decades is no more. Crews on Wednesday, July 19, took the final facade pieces off the 127-year-old Crapo Building, readying the building for its $12 million redevelopment. Braces for the facade, which was commonly referred to as a "cheese grater" around town, remain in place, but are expected to be removed sometime next week.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
