Livingston County News

As Livingston County Administrator Ian Coyle surveyed the workshop floor at Hilltop Industries on Monday morning he could watch employees push a rubber gasket inside a metal tube, creating the piece that air flows through on a Crosman air gun.
Across the aisle, another crew was placing the gauze padding into jewelry boxes that will eventually include pieces for Alex & Ani, a company that designs and creates bangle bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings.
Coyle and other county representatives visited The Arc of Livingston-Wyoming’s workshop, the Peterson Employment Center, 3 East State St., to deliver the county Board of Supervisors’ official proclamation of “Developmental Disabilities Month.”
The proclamation, Coyle read, urges “citizens of Livingston County to give full support to efforts towards enabling people with developmental disabilities to live full, productive lives of inclusion in our communities.”
The presentation ended with a round of applause from the assembled employees.
“We thank the board for all of your support for the Arc,” said Miranda Snyder, a Hilltop employee and member of Arc’s self-advocacy group. “If not for you guys none of this would be possible.”
Coyle was accompanied by Board of Supervisors Chairman Eric Gott, who is also the Livonia town supervisor, and Lima Town Supervisor Pete Yendell.
March is “National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.” The County’s Board of Supervisors, at its March 9 meeting, passed a companion resolution recognizing the month in Livingston County.
