MARCH 26, 2018

On June 27, 2017, the City awarded a $674,000 construction contract to McCormick Sand to replace sewer, water, street and sidewalk facilities on Courtland between Jefferson and Wood; Jefferson between State and Water; and Jefferson between Hart and Union.

All trees that needed to be removed have been at this time. Stumps have been pulled and removed as well. Replacement trees will be offered to the homeowners later this year with the understanding that the homeowner is responsible for maintenance of the tree for the first year.

At this time, some of the new mains have been installed, and a portion of the laterals have been connected. Construction materials have been delivered and are on site.

You will still experience inconveniences during this project such as noisy equipment, dust, parking issues, intermittent water or sewer outages; and mail/parcel delivery along with trash day issues. So that your garbage service is not interrupted, we are requesting that once the truck can no longer drive on your street that you take your dumpster to Wood, Water or Johnson Streets for pickup. Whichever street is closest to your residence. Parking at your residence is still allowed after the construction has finished for the day.

You may contact the City at 231-873-2488 for additional information about construction-related issues.

The City has retained Prein & Newhof Engineering to monitor construction progress. If you need to speak to one of their representatives, the City will provide you with their number.
Thank you for your patience during the construction process.
