Abandoned bicycles to be removed

University ordinance requires that all bicycles on the Ann Arbor campus be registered with the city of Ann Arbor. Additionally, the ordinance allows for the impoundment of any bicycle that is left unattended for more than 48 hours. This month, DPS officers have placed notices on bicycles throughout campus that are in violation of the ordinance. If the bicycles have not been moved within 48 hours of tagging, they will be collected and held for 30 days by DPS.

In the past two years, more than 200 unclaimed bicycles have been donated to local charities. To register a bicycle with the city, take it to the City Clerk's office at City Hall, 100 North Fifth Ave. For more information about the abandoned bicycle collection process, contact Sgt. Jesse Johnson at (734) 763-3434.

This year, recipients' interruptions ranged from four to 34 years and their ages ranged from 27 to 57. Applications for the 2005-06 scholarships will be available in October.
