Trash Pickup Reminder June 13, 2018

Since this is the fist time trash will be picked up for the Wallace Avenue Project area, I am sending out this reminder to put your trash containers out at the usual curb-side location tonight. We also ask that you write your address on a piece of duct tape or similar and place it on your barrel in case your barrel needs to be moved and then brought back after pickup.

We expect Best-Way to arrive around 6 AM so that pickup is complete prior to Kalin Construction starting work at 7 AM. If you experience any issues with your pickup, please contact Streets and & Rubbish Superintendent Don Evans at 269-983-5541.

As always, please feel free to contact Abonmarche Project Engineer, Tim Drews (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , 269-927-2295 ext. 157) with questions or concerns.

2018 Sidewalk Replacement Project

 The City Engineering Department advertised and bid the 2018 Sidewalk Project twice in the spring but the City did not receive any bids. The City intends to re-advertise the project this summer and open the construction schedule to allow the work to be completed in the fall 2018 or spring 2019 in order to attract bids.

2018 Dunham Lift Station Replacement Project

Design of the Dunham Lift Station Replacement Project is currently underway. We anticipate scheduling another resident meeting in the future to provide an overview of the updated plans. A notice will be mailed to the residents and property owners in the project area when a meeting date is established.
