CONSTRUCTION UPDATES POSTED WEEKLY ON CITY WEBSITE. Did you know that we share a weekly construction update on our website? Stay up-to-date with all the progress on streets and sidewalks affecting your neighborhood. Check it out here.
PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE. Please note, a variety of preventative maintenance projects will take place on streets throughout the City this summer. These preventative measures allow us to increase the lifespan of our streets -- ultimately saving financial resources. We encourage you to plan extra time when traveling and thank you in advance for your patience. The patching operations – made possible by the 2015 Street & Sidewalk Millage – will require only minor lane closures for short periods of time and will not require any complete closures or detours.

DEPUTY TREASURER CHAR VEENSTRA RETIRES. This week we say a fond farewell to Deputy Treasurer Char Veenstra as she retires after 20 years with the City. As Deputy Treasurer, Char has been prepared hundreds of thousands of property tax bills, processed countless payments and answered hundreds of questions from property owners. In addition, Char processed accounts payable invoices and performed most of the daily accounting duties for the city. Her knowledge of taxes, accounting and her attention to detail will be missed, but we wish her well in her future endeavors.
