No, the fire station in Pinckney doesn’t have huge Trump signs on it; here’s the story

Does the Putnam Township Fire Department station in Pinckney have some huge Trump signs on it?


Yes, there’s a building that used to be the Putnam Township Fire Station that has some huge Trump signs on it, but no, it’s not the fire station anymore. But it’s still causing a lot of confusion and controversy around town because a lot of people THINK it’s still the fire station.

The building, located on M-36 on the east side of the Village of Pinckney, next to Rite-Aid, used to house the Putnam Township Fire Department, but it was sold several years ago to Carney Enterprises. When the enormous Trump signs popped up on the building a few days ago, the village and township both started fielding calls, wondering why the fire station was sporting huge Trump signs.

Building owner Mike Carney took to Facebook to explain what was going on, posting this in the Pinckney Village Underground Unofficial group:

In addition to the signs, there are also two vehicles parked out front, adorned with Trump signs.

Although the signs aren’t on village property, they might be in violation of the village’s sign ordinance, because of the size. Carney said in his post that he’s heard from the village’s zoning administrator and other officials. As of now, from what we know, no citations have been issued and the signs are still up.
