STREET MAINTENANCE. This spring, contractors and City crews will perform preventative maintenance and repairs on some City streets. Major streets such as Breton, Hall, Plymouth will receive extensive patch repairs and crack sealing along with many local street locations which will take place throughout spring and summer. These repairs and preventative maintenance work will be ongoing and only cause minor interruptions. Most work will be completed on streets within one day. We appreciate your patience and understanding while these repairs and preventative maintenance improve our streets.
City Department of Public Works Crews continue to fill potholes this spring caused from the changing seasons. If you need to report a pothole you can do so by submitting a request by clicking here or by calling Public Works at 616.940.4870.
SIDEWALK REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE PROGRAM. As part of the 2015 Streets and Sidewalks Millage, the City has invested more funds into the annual sidewalk rehab and replacement program. Each year, we target areas on a rotation and this spring we will focus on the area around Oakwood Drive (Between Breton Road and Woodlawn Avenue) south to the City limit. Removal and replacement work will take place from April to June depending on weather and any unforeseen issues.
SPRING ZONING REMINDERS. Has winter weather taken a toll on your old fence, or are you thinking of installing a new one? You won’t need a building permit, but there are some rules that you will want to be aware of:
Are you dreaming of getting your big toys out and ready for the season? Outdoor storage of boats, trailers and RVs is allowed for up to 72 hours. Otherwise, they must be stored indoors, or in a rear yard only, and then they must be reasonably shielded from view. Not all properties are capable of accommodating such storage, so you might have to seek offsite storage for your toys.
If you have any questions please call 616.940.4817.
