The company, which called Blackman-Leoni Township Public Safety, was selling off several of its trucks and trailers but is not going out of business, said the company’s attorney, Thomas Hendrickson.

“We don’t want them to protest the auction,” he said. “We want the auction to go forward to the best of its ability. We don’t want problems.”
Hendrickson Trucking is asking the employees to contribute to their health insurance, in addition to other concessions. The company has said the costs to run the business continue to climb every year, and they need employees to make some sacrifices.
